The Ring Vase by Olivier Gagnère was created for a 2017 solo exhibition of whimsical, colorful ceramics at Galerie kreo. Featuring bright and deep hues, adorned with playful shapes, the entire collection expresses the French designer’s signature style of juxtaposing tradition and modernity. It is a limited edition of 8 pieces + 2 AP + 2 prototypes.
Each is numbered and signed by the designer. Born in France, Olivier Gagnère lives and works in Paris. After studying law, he chose to radically change course and became a self-taught designer. In 1981, he traveled to Italy to work with Ettore Sottsass. By the mid-1980s, he was back in France developing his own designs and exhibiting in hip venues like Galerie Marc Lamouric and Galerie Néotù. He has since earned an international reputation for bold aesthetics and his frequent collaborations with the most skilled craftspeople in Murano, Arita, and Limoges.
