Single vase. One of two vases ever made in this design. It's handmade singulary, affected by the relationship Gio Ponti & Lucio Fontana.
The medium is ceramic and hand brushed with the sophisticated and antique technique of " Lustro", that gives iridescent color, mirror, the inside it's enamelled.
It never went in production.
This shape 'Vaso intrecciato' was very loved by Gio, in the 30's he did it in hammered pewter with Nino Ferrari.
Gio Ponti, choose to hand brush the artifact with the "Lustro" technique because of it's iridescent metallic effect which brings lightness, which characterizes his works: as the "L'infinito Blu" and his icon diamond shape - ceramic tiles which covers all his buildings like Denver Art Museum / facede of the mall Bijenkorf Holland / Montecatini Milano etc..
