The inspiration for Isabell Heimerdinger’s ceramic edition „Portacenere“ (2021) was the painting „Al bar“ (2015) by the Italian artist Salvo. The painting shows a person seated at a table in a bar, smoking a cigarette absorbed in his thoughts. What caught Heimerdinger’s attention in this artwork was a small light green object placed on the table — an ashtray, in Italian “portacenere”. An everyday object, rather useful than decorative. Heimerdinger used a multitude of glazed layers, which provides each piece with a lively, distinctive and unique appearance.
