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.

With A Bottle of Transient Essence in the Archaic series, Markku Piri wanted to create something flamboyant, and combine glossy and almost metallic black, with a most delicate aqua blue which is satiated. Is this a vase, or a magic lamp of fairy-tales?
