F R A C A S gallery asked 4 of its artists to create works especially for the Lake Como Design Festival. The result is a series of sculptural objects creating a colorful harmony of water hues, ranging from green to blue. A table, lamps, a mirror, vases and a tea/coffee set each tell a contemporary story as seen through the eyes of emerging artists who draw on 20th century art and design movements.

For the LCDF, SARAH PSCHORN created a series of vase-trophies that dialogue with art deco, taking up the motif of the scallop shell but also resonate with art nouveau, baroque and romanticism. Her ceramic sculptures bear wit- ness to her interest in a wide variety of eras, styles and cultures, which she brings together in three-dimensional collages. Born in Dresden, former GDR, in 1989 (the year of the German Reunion) Sarah grew up surrounded by Baroque architecture, an inspiration that persistently defines her work.
