This rare and elegant work of mid-century Modern art ceramic by the Italian pottery Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (est. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The dramatically curved and sculpted form firmly displays influences of Modernist design as well as design qualities reminiscent of Art Deco Bauhaus geometricism. The overall shape is that of a segmented sphere with three evenly balanced sections which creates the 'triparte' shape that would make an exceptional feature as an Ikebana arrangement. The sumptuously applied and lightly textured glaze is called the Sasso Bianco or, 'White Stone' that creates depth with shadows from the curves and angles. The combination of the form, glaze, and condition makes this piece a rare find.

Like many other Italian potteries that were popular during the mid-century period, little is known about the pottery but the exceptional quality of design undeniably speaks for itself. This work would suit a space with Modernist, Minimalist, and Mid Century décor, either as a standalone work of art ceramic or functionally as a vase.
