Mmmm... just one posting today.

This is a TUNDRA bowl designed by Michael Bang - son of the famous Jacob Bang- in 1977. This one stand almost 7,2 cm. tall and its diameter is 8,8 cm.

This series has a lot of different designs and just lik it happens with many of Holmegaard designs, the name is given because of the colour and/or decoration, in this case the brown flowing lines around the piece (by the way, this must have a technicalword in English, does anybody know how to call this kind of work?

    An Italian term is used 'a pennellate' : pasta vitrea inclusions. Carlo Scarpa invented the technique for Venini in 1940.

    I suppose it's a form of filigrana?

    Scarpa also did something called "sommerso a spirali" which looks more controlled than the Michael Bang pieces. I got my first Michael Bang Tundra only a few months ago.

    Should we call it "free filigrana"? LOL

    By the way, the few TUNDRA items I've seen for sale online were pretty expensive. Is it such a special series?

    So you have another TUNDRA... Can we please see it? ;)
