Italian Ceramic Vase "Bucchero" by C.A.Rossi Gio Ponti Style Gubbio

$632.41

About

Iconic ceramic vase "Bucchero"; the “bucchero” is a type of black and shiny pottery, often fine and very light, produced by the Etruscans to make domestic furnishings and decorative objects; the "bucchero" was used in Etruria from the second quarter of the seventh century BC to the first half of the fifth century BC; the black monochrome integral is the most evident feature of this type of pottery and the coloring was obtained through a particular firing; the term "bucchero" comes from the Castilian "bùcaro", with which they defined some vases arrived from South America more or less in the same period of the first findings in Etruscan archaeological sites. In the "bucchero" is black both the mixture and the surface, which is shiny and compact. The color is not obtained by painting but thanks to a special firing process in the absence of oxygen, which prevents the chemical transformations of oxidation that make it take on the typical orange coloring to the iron ores contained in the clay. Our "bucchero" vase was made by Carlo Alberto Rossi (1903-1970) in his workshop in Via Savelli Della Porta in the historic center of Gubbio (Italy) and bears the artist's signature on the bottom; the laboratory "Buccheri Antonio Rossi" draws its origins from the innovative activities in the field of ceramics and in the technique of "bucchero" in particular, which characterized the manufacture "Fratelli Rossi di Gubbio", started by Carlo Alberto and Antonio Maria Rossi in 1932. The search for new balances and purity of form has always distinguished the activity of this manufactory; some of the various collections that characterize the work of the workshop include models by the famous architect Giò Ponti (1891-1979), expressly requested by Carlo Alberto in the 1950s.; our vase produced between 1950 and 1955, is a work born in the period of this important collaboration and is inspired by the style of the famous Italian architect; the elegant and delicate female figure is inspired by a Hellenistic model, it is made with graffito decoration, pure gold leaf and polished. The vase, produced with an ancient and unique technique, combines classicism and design, an example of exquisite beauty and superb quality. Many works from this workshop can be found in various museums around the world and have received several national and international awards. Measures: diameter cm.13, height cm.34. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
