CASA explores a notion of ‘home’ that extends far beyond the physical manifestation. Home can be a location, a person, a group of people, a state of mind, or an abstract sense of belonging. The word “casa” is part of the vernacular of Mediterranean countries famous for their welcoming hospitality, celebrations in the home of family.
For CASA, Milly’s porcelain sculptural works in their muted colour palette evoke a sensuous feeling, with a focus on the curved form. The works explore fluid and sharp edges, work which appear heavy, strong yet at the same time appear delicate and soft. These biomorphic works reflect the harmonious contours found in Valentine Schlegel’s primitive and seemingly naturally occurring interiors, with subtle shifts in surface finish from raw unglazed porcelain to gloss glaze.
