Max Modolo - Carbon Turquoise Vase (27 cm) (1)

Max Modolo - Carbon Turquoise Vase (27 cm) (1)
Italy - After 2000 - Stoneware

Porcelain stoneware, organic in shape with truncated cone neck.

Firing temperature of 1,240 °C.

Turquoise enamel with denser carbon streaks and dots on the top of the vase.

The body of the vase in the central part has areas of blue and green that blend with the turquoise colour of the base.

The enamel is velvety but with some more material parts.

Max Modolo makes these ceramics in his studio in Italy.

His innovation concerns both the shape of the ceramic items and their finish.
He is very interested in the effects of ceramics and glazes obtained by some Italian artists such as Guido Gambone and Marcello Fantoni, and has always been attracted by the shapes created by Lucie Rie and Hans Coper.
Recently he became interested in the German ceramics of the '60s and '70s, known as Fat Lava ceramics.
