11.12.2017: One vase from Germany to Germany

Description: I will try to describe this vase but actually I doubt that I will be able to succeed with my words as well as the photos are not able to show its real beauty … Well, it’s color changes between Adria blue, fiord green, Great-Barrier-Reef turquoise and Loch Ness unfathomable. Its stature is rectangular and massive. Its decor is so pristine as the runes of our ancestors. A piece of art from Alo Longi for Bitossi Ceramics from Italy’s 1960s. A vase to loose yourself in. Ah, and I nearly forgot: You can also put flowers in.

Condition: The vase is in a very good condition except a few tiny flea bites and a appr. 2 mm flake in the glaze on the edging (painted over by the previous owner). I would say that through the uneven surface of the vase it is nearly impossible that it does not have – at least small – signs of wear.

Three things I wish for the new owner:

  • that you see the these incredible tones of blue and green

  • that you feel the relief surface and the cold touch of the glaze (I recommend to close your eyes)

  • that you imagine three places in your neighbourhood where you have seen the colors of this vase.
