Price $195.00Members $175.50
This elegant gray serving bowl featuring a 9-point star is designed by artist Sol Lewitt (1928-2007). Beginning with a simple series of plates designed for use in his home in Italy in the early 1980s, the artist adapted several of his serial geometric forms to the format of hand-painted Italian maiolica as dinnerware, tableware and decorative tiles. The bowl was part of his Star dinnerware series designed in 1984 and crafted by artisans in Deruta, Italy. The same family of Deruta artisans, whose tradition of crafting ceramics streches back over 600 years, continues to hand produce Lewitt's designs today. A clay form is fired and then glazed with a base coat before be hand painted and fired again.
Sol Lewitt's prolific career includes two an three-dimensional work ranging from wall drawings to photographs and hundreds of works on paper and extends to structures. Lewitt helped revoluntionize the definition of art in the 1960s with his famous notion that "the idea becomes a machine that makes art." His work is included in museums and galleries worldwide, including the collection of the Jewish Museum.
