Oceanographic Vase

Jaime Hayon

Oceanographic Vase

The Oceanographic vase is the result of Jaime Hayon joining forces with Maison Matisse
and is a tribute by the Spanish designer Jaime Hayon to Henri Matisse's work.

The designs on the vase's sea green background bring to mind the Mediterranean landscapes
which inspired Henri Matisse and inspire the Spanish designer.
The vase's shape is reminiscent of Etruscan and Roman amphoras
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".

Made entirely by hand at the Bosa Trade studio in Venice,
it took 15 hours of work to make the Oceanographic and 18 hours in the kiln.
The vase Oceanographic has been produced in a series of eight and four artist's proofs,
each piece is signed and numbered by Jaime Hayon and Maison Matisse.

Why Oceanographic?

Jaime Hayon wanted to pay tribute to the Mediterranean. In his inspiration text, Jaime Hayon highlights the importance of the Mediterranean in his work: "The main thing I feel I share with Matisse is a passion for the Mediterranean: nature, the sea, imagination and the ability to dream."
