Set of 4 “Quasitondo” black ceramics for Ceramica Franco Pozzi

Set of four ceramics by the Italian ceramicist and deigner Ambrogio Pozzi. Ambrogio was the son of Franco, that first estabilished the ceramic manufacturer Ceramica Franco Pozzi in Gallarate, and the one that developed it bringing it into the world of design. During his long carreer, Ambrogio Pozzi has designed a large number of items, vases, containers, tableware, using often stoneware. He also collaborated with architects such as Gio Ponti and manufacturers as Rosenthal.
This ceramics are part of the series Quasitondo, designed in 1973 and exhibited at the XV Triennale in Milan, and feature a distinctive shape that is created subtracting round space in an already rounded form. They are coated in a matte black finish. The set is composed of 3 vases and one bowl/centerpiece, two vases can be combined pulling them together as in the first pictures.
They remain in excellent vintage conditions, except the cylindrical vase that has a very small chip at the base. One piece is marked under the base.
