A New European Shipment – part V

Italian Modernist Hand-Thrown Ceramic Vase (LEO Design)

While this piece tempts me to reference “Under the Tuscan Sun,” it’s probably a bit more Italian Mediterranean Coastal than Florentine Hill Country.  Furthermore, it probably looks more like Jupiter than it does the Sun.  None of this matters; this 1960’s Italian glazed ceramic sphere transports me to a sun-baked Italian villa—where I’d happily spend the rest of my life.  Hand-thrown terra-cotta is glazed with variegated bands of orange and green.  A humble handful of simple wildflowers will look like a million bucks in this bright and earthy handcrafted vessel.

The piece above is one of many new pieces of European art pottery, just-received at LEO Design.  Please come into the shop to see it in-person or call us for further information.
