After the funnel, genuine symbolic object in his artistic works, MARC-ANDRÉ 2 FIGUERES got interested in carafes as he started working with glass-blowers. Is it his Catalan origins that are now taking control? The artiste has appropriated himself one of the most well-known symbols of the Catalan culture : The “PORRO“. This wine flask which is used as a convivial festive object that goes from hand to hand to drink from it without putting one’s lips upon its neck had not been revisited for at least a century. It had to be the contemporary vision that respected the codes of its specific use. of an artist. Marc-André 2 Figueres with the complicity of a highly qualified glass-blower, has created the 21st century “porro”, faithful to tradition and resolutely in today’s trend with its flamed colors. The prints of the Past, container and containing, void and full, are still the leitmotivs of this contemporary reflection.
