Raza is born of the encounter of two materials that penetrate and reject each other simul- taneously. The strength and density of the stoneware surrenders to the thrush of fibers, wholly detached from any trace of fragility. Raza speaks of the mark that connections provoke and the poetry where nuance is born. Raza honors difference and pluralism through the expression of unique natures…that can only emerge in contact with the strange and anomalous.
Philadelphia Museum of Art (Philadelphia, United States) has acquired the “Raza” vases to be part of its world-renowned permanent collection. Official PMA object number: 2019-146-2,3
