Ettore Sottsass for Bitossi Glazed Ceramic Vase

$2,500.00

An early vase by Ettore Sottsass for Bitossi, this line of tri-glazed vessels and serveware were commissioned by the Italian ceramicist by a Dutch department store, De Bijenkorf. Produced c. 1958, the ovoid design layers a pebbled, matte black glaze over a white glaze, then emblazoned with a swash of pale blue volcanic glaze. In this particular example, the “eruptions” are particularly fine, showing just pinpoints of the black glaze beneath.

Signed with reference to the colorway “Bigia - Italy” on foot.

Dimensions

8” height x 5” diameter; interior diameter at the mouth is 2.5." 

Condition

Excellent original condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. A small area of firing discoloration at the foot.
