About

Ugo La Pietra "Inner strength" vase #16 From the "Inner strength" collection, ceramics dedicated to the theme of "virility". "Inner strength" alluding to powerful musculature that gives expression to the forms, highlighted by the black, compact, glossy surfaces that recall an archaic wrestler's skin gleaming with perspiration. Physical and emotive energy capable of changing the balance of traditional vase shapes, accompanied by votive objects. Ugo La Pietra Made in bucchero ceramic. Bucchero is a type of black and glossy ceramic, produced in ancient times by the Etruscans to make vases. Unique piece, handmade. There may be small differences from the photo.
