1960s Bertoncello Italian Vintage Abstract Sculpture Brown Red Ceramic Vase

Create a sculptural arrangement of organic shapes, combining style statement and functionality with these Italian vintage stoneware Art pieces: a group of 7 mid-century modern different ceramics is available, 6 vases and a bowl/catch-all, by Bertoncello and designer Roberto Rigon, showing inspiration from Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore work. This particular postmodern abstract sculpture vase, quite innovative for the period and particularly in the mid 20th-century ceramic sector, has a sleek destructured circular silhouette, glazed in a terracotta red brown earth pigment enamel on a smooth surface that catches light reflections, with a center hole for flowers, raised on small feet.
Bertoncello Ceramiche d'Arte in Schiavon (Vicenza - Italy) was a company founded in the 1950s that achieved great national and international success in the 1970s, thanks to the collaboration between Giovanni Bertoncello and the designer Roberto Rigon, both gifted with great artistic style and innovative vision. Their creations show a modernist approach, choosing geometry and unexpected shapes that confer a sculptural appearance to the forms. The company closed in the late 1990s.
