A series of handmade vases, inspired by the observation of the natural world and by an art work that has struck our imagination: the bronze bas-relief by Pietro Tacca, part of the equestrian monument by Giambologna in Piazza della SS.Annunziata in Florence. In the bas-relief there are myriad of bees in concentric
circles. On Alveare surface, every small bee has been applied by hand, each vase
is a crawling unique piece.
