fornasetti vases by bitossi ceramiche

fornasetti vases produced by bitossi ceramiche

fornasetti have released a new limited edition collection of vases produced by italian company bitossi ceramiche.

a plaster form of a vase created by piero fornasetti in the 50’s, never went into production, was discovered in the cellar by his son barnaba. this is the ‘theme’ used for the copious ‘changes’ that seem endless. all the members of this family have a natural inclination to disguise and an elegant humor. on show from february 26 to april 3, 2010  in the spazio fornasetti, corso matteotti 1/a in milan. the itinerary exhibition will then travel to new york and be shown on may 15, 2010 at barneys.

  • Beautiful and very surreal grouping! Zinc Details in San Francisco has some Fornasetti vases in stock!
