Offered is a handmade 19 3/8 ” by 3” crackle glazed linen colored tone on tone stoneware tray by world renowned Italian ceramic artist Rina Menardi who began working with clay during the 1980’s. This vintage piece, produced circa 2000, is in excellent condition without chips, cracks or repairs. Menardi’s handmade stoneware collection is characterized by simple lines, organic colors, and shapes inspired by nature. Her surfaces and finishes are realized using ancient techniques that date back to the origins of ceramics. Inspired by nature itself, her collection removes the harshness often associated with mass produced machine made objects. Unlike many artists, Menardi believes that her ceramics should work with us and function how we want them to rather than impose themselves on our lives.
