For the First Annual of Andalusian Trade Awards, the Regional Government of Andalusia wanted to count on several Andalusian craftmen for the design and manufacturing of different craft pieces which were used as trophies for the different prizes.
We were lucky for being chosen as one of the Andalusian artisan studios to perform one of these pieces, in concrete we had to design an exclusive piece as a trophy for the Award to a Town Council for its promotion of trade.
Well, our design consisted of an artistic and sculptural piece, formed by two main parts. First, the piece at the base is a map of Adalusia, with textures made by points in different sizes which are a symbol of the different town councils of our region, connected by a net of lines.
Second, there is a globe resting on the map of Andalusia, and the map of Europe is carved on this Earth globe. Sobre Andalucía se posa el globo terráqueo, sobre el que aparece el mapa de Europa hueco. The map pf Andalusia is projected from the base and goes out the space of Europe in a sculptural metephore which represents how Andalusia presents to itself and the rest of the world through its trade and regional products and produce.
Finally, this is just a proof of the wide variety of possibilities that ceramics have when it goes together with design and creativity.
Have you got any idea you think we can make it in ceramics? Just let us know! 😉
