Small vase / jug : Height 16.5 cm x Diameter 9.5 cm (0.8 kg).

Weight: approx. 3 kg. total.

Crackle glaze:
Craquelure gives ceramics an "antique" look. The effect is achieved through a chemical reaction that results in regular-looking crackle. The Chinese and Koreans were the first to use this technique long ago.

Rimini Blue:
The term "Rimimi blue" is used for ceramics made by Bitossi in Italy and ceramics made in the same style. The Bitossi company is known for the ceramics they have been producing since the 1950s designed by Aldo Londi (1911-2003). In the United States, Bitossi ceramics were sold by manufacturer Raymor.
