Hopebird is a sculpture made of ceramic and hand-painted in gold 24 kt, by the brainchild of Jaime Hayon and produced by Bosa. Hopebird has a proud look, forward-looking, inviting us to reflect and maintain a positive outlook toward life and the future. A symbolic statue with a humorous and mocking taste, that breaks every conventional scheme. The high-quality ceramic processing of Bosa meets the artistic genius of Jaime Hayon, in a sculptural trend. The stand is included.
“A tabletop sized sculpture that symbolizes the importance of an optimistic approach to what lies ahead. The ‘HopeBird’ stands proud and straight with a dynamic watch-out position toward the horizon, inviting us to reflect on the importance of staying positive to what the future may bring.”
His artistic vision was exhibited for the first time in the “Mediterranean Digital Baroque” and “Mon Cirque” installations. These collections put Jaime Hayon at the forefront in a new wave that blurs the lines between art, decoration, and design, and rebirth of intricate objects finely worked in the context of contemporary design culture.
Jaime Hayon further defined his vision in subsequent personal exhibitions and exhibitions at major art and design galleries and fairs around the world.
It was in 1976 that Italo Bosa started its own ceramic production following the ancient processing techniques for objects made entirely by hand, enhanced by a rich color palette, decorated with precious metals – gold, platinum, copper – and enamels with exclusive shades created by the company. Precise techniques that are still today at the base of Bosa’s production and that give the objects uniqueness, quality, and recognizability. The ceramic objects and furnishings created in the Bosa house, in addition to expressing all the knowledge of the craft, transmit that incessant experimentation of the possibilities of ceramics that has among its objectives the transformation of formal and functional habits into new interpretations, new fantastic functions and worlds, a mission that Italo Bosa has been able to transfer to his daughters Francesca and Daniela, to his wife and to all his collaborators.
