This elegant work of mid-century Modern art ceramic that is brimming with chicness is by the Italian pottery Bertoncello Ceramiche D'Arte (est. c. 1956 - c. 1999). The sculpted and abstract pitcher form firmly displays influences of Modernist design as well as design qualities reminiscent of Art Deco Bauhaus geometricism. The overall shape is that of a segment and features a handle that is created from graduating oval hollow that ends in the circular piercing.

The sumptuous glaze of this piece is silky to touch that is not too overtly glossy. Visually, it presents as a refined blending of rich, Vanilla Cream 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.
