Calculate shipping cost
Particular and original ceramic vase; it is made of clay and finished with a special glazing that makes the object unusual and particular; the vase has an organic shape that emphasizes the volumes while the rounded and recessed hole and the vertical lines give lightness and softness to the whole. It was produced between 1965 and 1970 by Bertoncello Ceramiche based on a design by Giovanni Bertoncello in collaboration with the well-known artistic innovator Roberto Rigon. Bertoncello Ceramiche was founded in 1956 in Schiavon, in the province of Vicenza (Italy) by partners Lini, Marco Pizzato, and Giovanni Bertoncello, with the name of "LPB", soon changed its name to "Bertoncello Ceramiche d'Arte" and the management remained exclusive to Giovanni Bertoncello who, thanks to his artistic skills and entrepreneurial flair, led the company to achieve great success both in Italy and on the foreign market, so much so that in the early seventies the factory employed over 30 people. Unfortunately, not much is known about the company because all of its catalogs and archives were destroyed when the company closed in 1999. The forms of Bertoncello's ceramics are often very sculptural and geometric and look like small studies or maquettes for massive modernist sculptures yet to be built. This sculptural appearance of many pieces was enhanced by the use of feet that subtly lift the piece from the surface on which it sits. They are reminiscent of the works of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth and the architecture of the period. The vase is in excellent condition. Measures diameter cm.23, depth cm.8.
