Fasciated II


Inspired partly by the visual vernacular of historical Italian nun habits, that almost feel ready to take flight, these have a double chalice and like glass, exhibit a fluidity that resembles a moving fabric. Cameranesi-Sgroi was also very much interested in the layers inherent in fasciated flowers, like an evening primrose or nasturtium. Furthermore, these objects particularly suited for a celebratory occasion – a banquet, an intimate nightly ritual – retain a sense of sensuality and glamor, while simultaneously inviting a sense of bodily transformation, decay and even illness – sumptuous like pearls but also rigid like ice or bone.
