Modern Classic

One Vase/Four Femmes
This mid-century take on a classical vessel is an Italian hand carved terracotta vase with a deep blue interior glaze. The sensual bathing beauties are sgraffito in relief to the rough brown and olive background. They are realized in a certain illustrative style popular at the time (think Warhol). While their bodies are the natural color of the clay the fabric details are beautifully saturated red and blue glaze, adding to the 3-dimentional effect. Made by Fabbrini, 1950s
