Helen Sister Madagascar is one of the five vases representing the five sisters of the Madagascar Sisters collection designed by the designer Pepa Reverter for Bosa and presented in 2018 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan during the Design Week. The five pieces, in different finishes, are painted and finished by hand. The design of this elegant collection comes from the hand of the artist Pepa Reverter, whose intention is to pay homage to the woman of all cultures and of all times. The Sisters collection was designed in Barcelona and this has led to a vocation for cosmopolitan and Mediterranean life.
The five sisters are Louise, Frida, Sofia, Helen and Clara, they are imaginative, happy and caring. They like the beauty of fairs and open spaces, in which to transmit the light with a head full of harmony and creativity.
A collection of vases that pays tribute to women of all cultures and of all times, which is continuously enriched with colors and textures.
The Sister Collection was born in 2013 in white ceramic; in 2015 the most romantic version of Clara comes out, Sister in Love, with a heart and is available in bright red and satin white with precious metals, in 2018 the Madagascar Collection was presented at the Milan Show.
Pepa Reverter graduated in engraving from the Llotja School of Applied Arts, followed by a degree in sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Barcelona, and finally a Masters in video and television at the Polytechnic of Barcelona. His academic preparation ranges from some of the oldest forms of communication to the most modern, a journey linked to the timeless need to make sense of the world through art and stories. He works for Jaume Coscuella and Magí Baleta, engravers of the work of Joan Miró, Jaume Plensa, Xavier Grau and Garcia Sevilla.
He worked as a visual artist, illustrator, designer, ceramist, professor, photographer, videographer; Pepa Reverter works at TV3, illustrating for the International Herald Tribune, designing ceramic pieces for Bosa, design for BD Barcelona and many other roles in between. He often collaborates with his partner, the creative director of the power plant, Ramón Ubeda, with whom he created his fantastic shared space in the @ 22 district of Barcelona.
His work is stimulating, it can strike with a distinct social message, with a fierce and feminine energy. Her “Sisters Collection” of female heads combines elegant shapes, sculptures and delicately rendered finishes that pay homage to women of all cultures. Her sisters, artists and activists are Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo, Helen Frankenthaler and Clara Campoamor, who represent many of the key themes of Pepa Reverter’s work. Each piece starts as a sketch, then as a painting, before being made as a vase or a sculpture, a process that allows you to experiment for a long time and explore the multiple meanings that the “sisters” represent in form and meaning.
The creativity of Pepa Reverter has a purpose, the purpose is what motivates his explorations with color and form, creating a state of mind, invoking a memory or mixing an emotion.
