The vases in the ‘Dorian Gray Jars’ series are designed to become wells of horror. They function like the famous mirror described by Wilde: ready to collect the evil thoughts, obsessions and psychopathies of their masters, they fill up to the brim, saving them from becoming ugly.
The “Obsession-noissesbO” vase is a sphere with a lid into which you can place and protect your obsessions. It is designed with the frescoes and mosaics of Pompeii in mind, recalling their colours and the time that has passed. It is engraved and scratched with obsessive signs, in a circular fashion, to simulate the cyclical and infinite nature of obsession.

Irene, an architect and ceramist, is the founder of HEKLA, a micro-lab for ceramic experimentation. She works mainly with manual construction, but also experiments with slipcasts, glazes and colours for projects dedicated to a wider public.
HEKLA does not want to develop a defined brand idea, but rather works by developing themes that, from time to time, capture her attention, thus allowing her great creative freedom.
The subjects to which she devotes her most artistic creations are the interactions between ceramic SHAPE, as a universal language, and SIGNS as an expression of a subjective political or psychological position.
Her functional ceramics, on the other hand, are the sign of the techniques she is currently experimenting within her workshop. it is therefore a dynamic, personal and unique experimental project.
