The Barzoj vase uses the archetypal shape
of the amphora, robbing it of some of its universality and utility – it plays with it provocatively and adds an artifactual uniqueness. Its fragile elegance, emphasized by its slim profile, gives the object a very specific character. With
its atypical shape, Barzoj attacks our senses and forces us to come nearer and inspect it in detail. The optical illusion conjured by its ingenious shape tests the limits of our imagination. Just like the breed of greyhound after which it is named, it exhibits not only elegance, but also surprising strength. The vase is designed in three versions: Octopus, Amfo and Lion. Only thirty items were made of each.
