Star Within Two Circles Dinner Service 'Grey' by Sol LeWitt

About

Star within two circles dinner service designed 1984/fabricated now set of 24 salad plates, dinner plates and pasta bowls 8 salad plates: 8" diameter 8 pasta bowls: 10" diameter 8 dinner plates: 11" diameter stamped signature with a copyright on the verso Each setting within each set of eight (dinner plates, salad plates or pasta bowls) shows a star with a different number of points beginning with a 3-point star and going up to a 10-point star. For example, when you purchase a set of eight dinner plates, each plate will have a differently numbered star. If you purchase a complete service of 8 settings (24 pieces total), you will receive 8 matching settings showing 8 different stars. The thumbnails to the left show a 5-point setting, a 10-point setting and a 4-point setting. Our stock is constantly changing, so please give us a call if you're looking for pieces that are immediately available. In the early 1980s, Sol LeWitt and his family bought a rustic farmhouse in Spoleto, Italy. While in Rome looking for new dishes, he and his wife, Carol, discovered that the maiolica pottery they so admired was made locally, almost in their backyard, in Deruta, Italy. The craftspeople in Deruta were continuing the more than 600 year old tradition of creating maiolica, a technique of applying a glossy base glaze whitened with tin oxide onto fired clay pottery. Vivid, hand-painted colors are then added and the pieces are fired again. LeWitt designed his own dinnerware in Deruta and these same pieces are now available through Artware Editions in the full range of colors the artist intended. Each piece is made by hand by the same artisans who for generations have kept this proud and classic Italian tradition alive. This dinnerware is lead-free and dishwasher safe. If we do not already have it in stock the fabrication time is approximately 12 weeks.
