Ceramic centerpiece, gres with crystals
Ceramic centerpiece, gres with crystals, blue shades and grey edge
Stoneware centerpiece with thick crystals, cooked with the three-phases firing technique. The centerpeice was entirely moulded and decorated by hand using potter’s wheel ancient techniques. The material used for the centerpiece is gres, which is part of the so-called “compact paste” ceramics, as well as the most used materials for the production of furnishing tiles. The main feature of gres object is their low porosity, therefore their surface is extremely waterproof.
As well as ceramics, gres is really hard and resistant, difficult to scratch even with sharped steel points. The decoration final effect, enriched with thick crystals in blue, green and white shades, together with the contrasting irregular grey edge make the centerpiece elegant and suitable to every furnishing style. An artistic flair brought the Master to create a series of artwork using different methods and techniques, recognizable by the stamped H sign. The aim of this symbol is to represent the vocal letter Eta (H; η) of the Greek alphabet. In the numeric system of the ancient Greek, the letter Eta had the value of 8 which, in turn, is one of the most ancient symbols ever represented. 8 is the number of the Compass Rose, of the Tower of the Winds, of petals in a lotus flower and then of the paths in the Buddhist terminology.
In addition, H (‘acca’ in Italian), which is a mute consonant in the Italian alphabet, in Master Liberati’s opinion means something that is not pronounced, not to be expressed using words. The variety of the 8 symbology inspired the Master to represent with the letter “H” the continuity, infinity and complexity of his artistic career, which is difficult to express using words but narrated by his artworks with different styles and techniques.
The ceramic centerpiece with gres and crystals is a unique piece and it is not reproducible. Signed by Master Giuseppe Liberati. When purchasing this item, there will be attached a Guarantee certificate as a warranty of the uniqueness of the product.
