TIPI  vases  / unique pieces

  • BY CRISTIAN MOHADED, 2017

TIPI that deals with a collection of containers made entirely of natural leather, which seek to externalize the strength and identity of a territorial material, with history, past and future, where traditional techniques and languages used by the gaucho are intertwined, claiming old sewing techniques , modeling and construction (when boiling the leather), without the need for threads or glues, which were used to assemble or overlap leather sheets (commonly called embossed seams in criollo traditions). In its upper part, I worked with the natural movement of the leather after submitting it to a process of boiling in water. An object that combines contemporary forms and the challenge of revisiting these artisan techniques and forgetting them.
