We kindly suggest that you read the whole description, as we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Splendid French vase made in Art Deco style; it has a simple and essential design with pleasing soft and harmonious lines; the item was produced between 1970 and 1975 in France in a small artisanal workshop in the Marais area, one of the most historically rich neighborhoods of Paris, where the workshops of artists and artisans were and still are the soul of the neighborhood itself. The vase features the characteristic and engaging craquelé workmanship; craquelure in painting is the dense network of cracks that forms on the surface of paintings; it is often used to determine the age of a painting and thus uncover possible forgeries. The decorating industry, towards the end of the eighteenth century, when the trend was to decorate with objects with a strong reference to antiquity, invented the aging technique of craquelure to offer it in the manufacture of a wide variety of objects and materials such as ceramics and glass. This technique can be done by a chemical method, acting on the glaze of the object with special products that evenly etch it with a lattice effect; but the best method is the Japanese working technique called Raku, which involves a particular type of firing of the glaze at high temperatures that is then cooled by extracting it quickly from the kiln, this process, in which it is necessary to respect with care and precision certain times and temperatures, inevitably creates the formation of craquelé effect cracks on the glazed surface; the raku technique allows you to create objects with a unique and unrepeatable design, and for this reason, it has often been used by designers and artists to create original and fascinating; these objects are also highly appreciated by those who love natural texures as they very clearly recall the effect of water-poor earth typical of desert areas. Thus, our vase tells us a little piece of history, is a highly decorative object, attracts attention, and can be placed in any type of decor. The vase is in good condition. Measures diameter cm.29, height cm.25. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (custom-made wooden crates, Styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
