This leather artwork Vase, called "Florentia" - The Medici - designed and handmade by the Florentine artist, Marco Giusti, is one of the unique works of art in the Pierotucci collection of leather vases. Refined and sensual lines in the vase collection are created using a special leather molding technique.
The process used to achieve the form of a vase from a piece of leather is leather molding, or wet forming leather. To produce this unique design, the artist performs a particular procedure by soaking the leather which makes it pliable and easy to shape and thus, mold in to a variety of forms.
This leather vase is stunning and distinguished, suitable for a sophisticated office or as a table centerpiece. The vase is made of 4 mm thick natural tan leather hand painted in a cotton white hue. Panels of the artist's signature blankets of wavy leather folds are accented with stitching. Completing the decor are figurative Florentine symbols: the "Giglio"- Fleur de Lis or Lily - and the Medici coat of arms that pay homage to the history of Florence. Each vase is individually worked by hand and signed, without using templates or drawings, thus assuring that the piece you own is an exclusive work of art.
The Florentine artisan, Marco Giusti, has exhibited his works in numerous art galleries in Milan and Florence, among which Palazzo Corsini and the Stazione Leopolda are to mention, and still represents excellence in the field of leather sculpture.
