This understatedly chic work of Italian mid-century Modern art ceramic is by studio pottery Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (est. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The elegantly dramatic 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 an abstracted jug with an extended slender and pierced 'wing' forming the handle.

The sumptuous glaze uses the rich Azure as a base, applied in a seamless and silky-to-touch manner. Overlaid onto the base is the fiery palette of oranges tones in Flame, Sienna and Brick that is interspersed with the deep yellows of Saffron and Goldfinch. The final glaze accent is the trails of Porcelain white mixed with the Azure blue.

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.
