Bertoncello Ceramiche Screziato Textured Glaze Vide Poche, 1960s-70s
PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available for pickup at our Oakville location.
This elegantly architectural work of mid-century Modern Italian art ceramic is by the Italian pottery Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (est. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The sculpted, Minimalist form firmly displays influences of Modernist design as well as design qualities reminiscent of Art Deco Bauhaus geometricism.
The arcs, curves, and ridges provide an excellent canvas for the rich and sumptuous glaze that is silky to touch and not too overtly glossy. Visually, it presents as a refined blending of rich, Golden Ochre that is feathered with deep sienna, giving additional depth. Take a step back to view this piece as a whole and the effect resembles leather or marbled stone.
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.
