"Nobes", new forms, introduced in 2010, also mark a formal and visual bend in Sandra Zeenni's practice and expression. The shape asks question, while revealing its harshness and its hidden recesses, obtained by the work of the hand sliding on the clay. It conveys an enigma, such an object fell from another planet.
"Nobes" proceeds at the same moment of the organic world, the curves of the human body, some of the spinal columns (axis of life) or naturally sensual curves, gone through by the hand of the “looker”, attracted by the peculiarity of the enamel, sometimes smooth in the borders of the sweetness of the skin ( white Nobe), slightly rough ( black Nobe) or presenting voluntary harshness (glaze with speckled effect as "Adria" of big dimension). Arousing multiple associations, these new forms interrogate the spectator, inviting him to establish a tactile contact with the work.
