ENOVART is a call to creativity and (…sustainability!), focused on manufacturing design elements by giving objects new uses while using raw materials from the world of wine.

To whom ENOVART is addressed

“We invite artists, designers, skillful in creating graphics & trompe de l’oeil (“fooling the eye”), laviu en vin (wine ink) on any support (wall, ceramic pots or wood, paper, cloth) or decorative objects,  pure art – using materials specific to wineries (staves, barrels, wine bottles, cork stoppers, amphorae, glasses… and the list goes on) or some emerged from the creative universe itself, with limits that we cannot even grasp.”

Anyone can sign up!

The ENOVART competition is open to anyone interested with no restriction whatsoever.

Session open until October 1st, 2023
Intermediate stage, but not mandatory, June 6th, 2023

ENOVART is a call that we send out to all those in love with art and wishing to participate in a competition organized under the umbrella of VINARIUM, i.e., to launch a unanimously valid message:

The art of wine is not just about the wine in the glasses,
but about everything that surrounds it!

By way of illustration:

  • Staves – painted, fretted, burned, carved, with metal/resin inserts; gold foil-covered barrique stave on a pedestal, as a real fairy bird, flying bird, ray of light (see Brâncuși);
  • The wooden screw turned into a totem, or practical – glass table leg/luminaire;
  • Long story short – anything is allowed: trompe de l’oeillaviu en vin (wine ink), hot carved polystyrene, resins (with grapes or vegetable materials), fascia boards, windows, shutters, doors – transformed into tables and other decorative objects;
  • Ceramic roof pipes and tiles, new ceramic pots (antiqued or not);
  • Cork stoppers, cut/melted glass bottles (e.g.  lighting fixtures);
  • Replicas of old objects (ceramic pots, wooden screws, winepresses, etc.)
