Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. Terra Cotta Tureen
Elsa Peretti created a collection of ceramic pieces in Italy for Tiffany & Co. The terra cotta pieces are my favorites from the group. The buttery texture of the clay is unlike any other terra cotta I have seen. It is a perfect medium for her organic and sculptural designs. Her tureen is unique and introduces new forms and lines to her catalog raisonne. The interior of the bowl is finished with a clear glaze. 7 inches in height and 12 inches in diameter.
