Ceramic vase made using colombino technique with reflections
Ceramic vase made using colombino technique with metallic reflections
The modern ceramic vase was ade using the colombino moulding technique, it is finished and decorated by hand. Unique piece. The contemporary artwork is made in modern style by master Giuseppe Liberati. All the embosses and the shapes of the decoration are highlighted by the shades of the copper-coloured metallic reflections and by the contrast of the nuances with the light-coloured reflections. The harmony of the structural shape and the synergy of the colours allow to observe the artwork from two points of view: the copper-red which highlights and enriches the vase thanks to its golden reflection, and the side light tone which lights up with platinum tones.
The colombino techniques consists in the making of small drawn cords made of clay which are sticked together starting from the base. This process allows to obtain rounded, cylindrical, flared, conical, irregular, even large objects etc. In particular, to shape the vase, with the clay cords were created different shapes, such as snails and spirals, to be assembled and interlocked together to give shape to a cylindrical vase with an irregular edge. The structural representation of waves crates an harmonious movement in the artwork and the shades of the decoration highlight the embossed details. The ceramic decoration technique with “reflections” is very particular and difficult to perform, it takes necessary tools, materials and knowledge in order to be able to foresee the decoration final result. The iridescent colour and the metallic reflection can be obtained only thanks to the skills, the knowledge obtained with the passing of the time and the right glazes overlapping, which allows to obtain unique chromatic effects. For the “reflections” technique a third cooking is required, at 720°C. At this temperature, in the oven, some oxygen reductions are induced, which allow the transformation of the metal salts which make the color become iridescent.
The ceramic vase made using the colombino technique with copper-red metallic reflections is an elegant decor object made in modern style and is an unique piece. When purchasing the object, a Guarantee Certificate will be attached to prove the craftsmanship of the work.
