PRIMATES VASES

These ape-like vases in saturated hues are part of Elena Salmistraro’s latest collections presented in Paris for Bosa called "Primates". This set of fine ceramic vases has been created to remind us of the delicate relationship between men and apes. The collection is comprised of 6 pieces, which were showcased at Maison et Objet, referencing three different breeds of apes: the mandrill, belonging to the family of African Cercopithecidae; the golden monkey, Cercopithecus Kandti, belonging to the family of African Cercopithecidae; and Debrazza’s Monkey, also belonging to the family of African Cercopithecidae. Ape is the only animal that evokes man in body shape, expressions and movements. This powerful similarity to men is what makes it fascinating, and what inspired the creation of these vases.

The “Primates” collection of art vases feature vibrant colours, textures and patterns to bring the apes to life. Produced in fine ceramic and enriched with coloured glazes and precious metals, this range is available in different striking colourways:

MANDRILLUS VASE:
Sage Blue, Green and Precious Metals
Navy Blue, Red and Precious Metals
W25 x H40 cm

KANDTI VASE:

Mint Green, Blue and Precious Metals
W26.5 x H41 cm

BRAZZA VASE:

Sage Green, Red and Precious Metals
W25.5 x H40 cm
