vase designed by Nilüfer Kozikoğlu 
pattern composition and handpainted by Sera İlel

Alvaz | Amulet is a three-branch vessel with brutalist edges created by Nilufer Kozikoğlu, and interpreted and hand-painted by the porcelain artist Sera İlel to form a visual tapestry of European patterns. In İlel’s hands, the brutalist vessel becomes the medium for a free composition of patterns. Alvaz’ participation in the auction is courtesy of GAD Art and Design LLC, New York.
