This exquisitely sleek and statement work of mid-century Modern Italian art ceramic is by Italian pottery Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (est. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The quiet yet firmly dramatic form displays influences of Modernist design as well as design qualities reminiscent of Art Deco Bauhaus geometricism. The overall shape is likened to that of an abstracted sea urchin with cleanly arched ridges offering clear delineation for each of the eight segments.

The arcs, curves, and ridges provide an excellent canvas for the rich and sumptuous glaze that is silky to the 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 and timelessness of the design undeniably speak for themselves.

The statement size, form, and overall quality of the condition make this work a particularly good find.
