Black clay rounded vase
Black clay and orange glaze rounded vase
The vase with minimal design, is a decor object made of black clay entirely moulded by hand and decorated with a vibrant orange glaze. This piece is part of the exclusive series “Black clay and Fire” by Master Giuseppe Liberati. The particular flattened shape of the vase is characterised by a large bulge and a large and short neck, both harmoniously proportioned with the vase base. The clay moulding, made using the potter’s wheel, and the coloration using glazes, are finished in every detail thanks to the solid experience in the artistic Italian craftsmanship field.
During one of his most remarkable artistic moments, the Master Giuseppe Liberati made a series of pieces in modern ceramic that we can call “Black Clay and Fire”. For the occasion, the Master decided to use a particular black clay, that is much harder to be shaped compared to the others. The technical skills of the Italian Master Giuseppe Liberati, combined with his creative and artistic flair, make him able to shape (with his hands or with the help of the potter’s wheel) complex and captivating shapes that, in this case, he decided to colour with a minimal and linear touch with the shades of orange. Semi-refractory clays, also called “Semire clays” are particular mixtures that can be included in the category of the “unconventional” ceramics.
This particular type of black clay, is suitable for the creation of decorative or artistic works. Vases and bottles which are part of this series, can be distinguished for their refined shapes: pyramidal, cylindrical, rounded or with very narrow or very large necks. As an alternative to traditional shapes, the series “Black Clay and Fire” suggests a series of unique and non-reproducible pieces. For the final colouring, as a tribute to one of the key elements, i.e. Fire, the artist used a vivid orange glaze that, brushes on the striped engravings of the clay, makes an unique and fascinating effect. The colour starts from the bottom and then, rising to the top, gives the feeling of a bottle-embracing fire, like it emerged from vulcanic lava.
The black clay and fire-colored glaze rounded vase is a unique piece and it is not reproducible. It is suitable to modern style interior furnishing decoration. When purchasing the object, a Guarantee Certificate will be attached to prove the craftsmanship of the work.
