Age of the World, Ceramic Jars

Based on demographic pyramides.

Collection of enameled ceramic jars that arises from the three dimensional population pyramid of different countries. Past, present and future evidence of the fate of world populations, these handmade containers owe their almost primitive and yet decorative shapes to demographic data provided by the UN.
Depending on the country, major events like wars or baby booms can be read and touched, but also more globally, economic or sanitary development, or the at times unstable equilibrium between populations of retired people and young people.
