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.
