Bertula plates

The artefact

These lathe-shaped ceramic plates are decorated with graphic motifs that evoke, in balanced compositions, the typical fabric of the traditional saddlebags. They are part of the Cotto Orbace line characterised by delicate clear-cut lines, reminiscences of loom-woven fabrics typical of the local tradition.
