Crushed Glass Ceramiche
What I love about this type of Italian pottery is the crackle glass glaze set in the decoration, giving it a sort of aged stained-glass look. The pottery itself is textured to resemble natural cork. With the pop-art shapes and the unexpected mix of color - amber, teal, orange, cobalt- and textures, the result is both modernist and rustic at once. We've had this Bitossi design (either Londi or Bagni) before as a box, but not as a rectagular vase as shown. 8.5"
