Gorgeous unique piece by Afro Celotto. Great color composition with avventurina, green filigree, amber and yellow colors. A piece to bring summer colors into your home. This vessel repeats the efforts of the seven skills vase (click on the link for full description), displaying the same techniques. In addition this vase uses avventurina zanfirico. This vase has a great shape and a fantastic color combination that reminds us of the color palette of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers.
BASE READS AND OTHER IDENTIFICATIONS, REFERENCES: Signed by the artist. Rated 5 star. For the decade I assume this was made in polychromy times so I am safely indicating 2000/2009 but it could possibly be an earlier piece.
