Huge Aldo Londi for Bitossi Rimini Blu Ceramic Vase, 1950s

Very rare huge “Rimini blu” vase by Bitossi designed by Aldo Londi for Raymor with 50 cm height. A very Italian Mid-Century Modern handmade ceramic vase of Londis art pottery collection for Rimini Blu, designed in 1959 for Bitossi Ceramiche and imported by Raymor in the 1960s. The deep blue glaze varies in turquoise shades and undertones and has a beautiful sheen. The hand-carved patterns of lines, dots and Xs produce a Brutalist aesthetic that blends well with Scandinavian and Danish Modern design. The whole is finished in a gorgeous high quality glaze.  Bitossi (or Manifattura Cavaliere Bitossi e Figlia) was founded by Guido Bitossi in Florence, Italy in 1921 and is still operational today. The Bitossi Foundation released the biography of the master Aldo Londi and presented a show dedicated to him, titled “Aldo Londi, a 20th Century Ceramist.”
