In the midst of a pile of wood, among old branches and some shrubs torn down, there was an old, abandoned trunk of pear-tree. After so many seasons of blossoming and juicy fruits, his life seemed over among other wood twigs until the day when two carpenters found him on their way through the fields, took him and turned into a unique piece of natural art. This is the story of the VECCHIO PERO wood decorative vase (“vecchio pero” in Italian means “old peer”)!
Worked with a special technique of “a natural edge”, at the perimeter, VECCHIO PERO decorative vase, still maintains the rests of bark that gives it a touch of raw and rustic. This particular piece was located at the junction between the trunk and the branch that had broken away when the tree was still alive, so that, on the vase, there is still the testimony of that remains through the irregular dark-edged hole, which counteracts with the pinkish-yellow background, typical of pear wood.
It’s hard to see where the craft ends and where the art begins in the works of Massimiliano and Sergio, two friends-carpenters from Val Curone (Piedmont) who have set up their own laboratory, called reWooding, in the countryside. Similarly, it is difficult to understand if the magic of their objects is more due to their technical expertise and experience, or due to colours, fibre and forms that only nature can give birth to. We are confident, however, that their creations have their own soul able to attract us and provoke our most natural wonder.
