Introverso is a white Carrara marble vase with a hammer-shaped monoflower little vase. It is a double-soul vase, which contains within itself another
vase of a completely different form. You can choose, if you rather keep the original shape of the first vase, or let the second vase emerge, breaking the thin marble strips with the hammer. Vase realized for the “analytic/digital” exhibition by Stefano Maffei, presented at Subalterno1 gallery in April 2012.
