The gift is part of a collection of thirteen terracotta vases, moulded to form an allusion to trees. The objects are presented as table architectures, and they demonstrate the size and the scope of the gestures and of the hands that crafted them. They are matt black enamel vases and the sections of their trunks are in terracotta colour. The presence of flowers with their distinctive shapes and colours contrasts with the plain geometry of these primary forms. “Vase 13” is signed on the bottom “Mario Botta P.A.”
