Decorative Ceramics by Coralla Maiuri

Decorative Ceramics by Coralla Maiuri

Last month, Italian designer and ceramic artist Coralla Maiuri presented her new Bottega d’Arte decorative vase collections at the Paris exhibition Maison & Objet and is now making plans for Milan Design Week,  Salone Internazionale del Mobile.

Her stylish collection of decorative vases is a result of fun experimentation with color and materials. Pearly, shimmering colors swirl under textured surfaces that nostalgically recall memories of marshmallows, candy treats and fairy dust. The forms are expertly crafted and balanced. Maiuri expresses her artistic freedom by using contrasting surfaces that playfully reflect light and dimension. Hand painted details in gold give a sophisticated elegance to the pieces.

Each vase is handmade and unique.
