This series has its origin in Florence, from the architecture and the interior of the first exhibition of Markku Piri in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi, among others from the Michelangelesque staircase in the Palazzo. Here, the artist wanted to create respectfully, but also with a little smile, objects which are timelessly archaic in their forms, and lush in their decor. The ancient glass tradition and the artistic ideas of the present times greet each other in a grand manner.

In charcoal black and a most luminous white, this exquisite bottle seems both, timeless and in our time. Glossy and frosted surfaces alternate between areas that are surfaced with the cut oval shapes.
