Bitossi




These new pieces are unique and handcrafted-- from Italy's Bitossi ceramics. The vase and platter were first introduced in 1953, but now they've been reissued and you can buy them here. I love the mid-century feel and intense color. Bottom picture is a classic Bitossi piece available through hi+lo modern ceramics.

Oh my that blue is just gorgeous. You know this reminds me of a fondue pot my parents bought back when they were jet setters and went skiing in France and Italy in the 60's. It has the exact same blue and texture. I wonder if it is! Gee, I wonder if it is still floating around somewhere back home.

Isn't this a powerhouse of a color? I hope you can find that old fondue pot-- better still-- try to find their old photos of 60s France and Italy. How cool!

Good call on the photos. Man, I'm sure there are tons of awesome old polaroids stuffed into some old box. I found a box of old pins they had from different ski resorts. Loved those!!!
