The artisan Walter Usai is a fifth-generation potter from the town of Assemini, in other words his family has been making water urns for the entire duration of their oral history.
This collection was made as a study in form of the classic water containers (jugs & canteens) for different uses. The challenge was to work with Walter’s father, Elvio, on paring down the forms to their absolute essence. These are forms that Elvio has been making since he began working in the family workshop as a child - first for utility and now for decoration. Abba Est Vira (Water Is Life) is representative of a world in transformation.
Sedili means "seat" in Sardinian and, in fact, this vase was specifically designed in the 60's when trucks became more common on the island. The flat base allows it to sit on the seat of a truck next to the driver and the tall spout makes for easy grabbing.
Designed by Walter Usai for Sardinian-based design publisher, Pretziada.
