Mid-Century Modern ceramic vase by Bertoncello, and designer Roberto Rigon, 1960s , Italy.

The vase uses negative and positive spaces, and abstraction in its design; influenced by Modernist Sculpture of the time - Glazed in a beige terracotta with a sand-like red brown earth pigment texture on a smooth surface that catches and diffuses the light.

Rigon is known for his organic shapes, combining design functionality with sculpture form. This vintage earthenware art piece captures this relationship.

Bertoncello Ceramiche d'Arte was a mid-century Italian ceramic company that was known for its innovative and sculptural vase designs. The company was founded in 1956 by Giovanni Bertoncello and Marco Pizzato. In the early years, the company produced traditional ceramics, but in the 1970s, Bertoncello began to collaborate with the designer Roberto Rigon. Rigon was a modernist designer who was interested in creating ceramics that were both functional and artistic. Together, Bertoncello and Rigon created a series of abstract and sculptural vases that were unlike anything else being produced at the time.

The vases were made from a variety of materials, including earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain. They were often decorated with simple geometric patterns or abstract designs. The vases were also known for their bold colors, which were often inspired by the natural world.

Bertoncello Ceramiche d'Arte was a successful company and its vases were sold all over the world. The company closed in the late 1990s, but its vases are still sought after by collectors today.
