Lot Essay

This work is unique. The crepuscular depth of the colour of the body is heightened by a thin profile of pale orange glass, invoking poetic reference to the Northern Lights of Lapland. The technical superiority and stylistic perfection of this work represents an evolution of the techniques and forms inaugurated in the early 1950s by the Lancetti and Orchidea series of 1952-1954.
