Arts and materials

The three vases designed by Jaime Hayon were made according to time-honored ceramic techniques by Bosa, an Italian ceramic studio located in the Venetian mountains. 

All the pieces in the collection are made from white clay. After being cast in plaster molds, the pieces are carefully polished to eliminate any irregularities. 

Once glazed, they are decorated with designs created by Jaime Hayon, and then fired up to 7 times at 930°C to obtain maximum quality and durability. 

The production of each piece required 15 hours of work and 18 hours of firing. The fruit of a long and meticulous process, the Graphnight vase is adorned to the stand test of time as witness to an iconic painter’s mark on the creations of today.

Inspiration

The result of Jaime Hayon joining forces with Maison Matisse, the Graphnight vase is a tribute by Jaime Hayon to Henri Matisse's work.

The designs of this vase evoke the landscapes of the Mediterranean, a source of inspiration for Henri Matisse and the Spanish designer. 

The vase's shape is inspired by Etruscan and Roman amphorae like the one portrayed in the painting "Interior with an Etruscan Vase", by Henri Matisse". 

Jaime Hayon has turned the silhouettes and natural features into fantasy elements that "melt together and float in a sea of color."
