Iridescent Polychrome Lustre Albarello Jar


Iridescent Polychrome Lustre Albarello Jar - Matteo Salsano


Mesmerizing in its polychrome iridescence and textured feel, this one-off ceramic piece is a glamorous take on the "albarello" jars once used in pharmacies. A stylized, ivory pattern of foliage envelops its silhouette, whose general metallic luster is obtained from nitrates, chlorides, and sulfates of gold, silver, and copper. The piece undergoes a second firing in a reduction kiln to seal its signature texture and iridescent shades, a technique dating back to ancient Persia.
