itossi bowl, ceramic and fused glass, white, blue and red, signed. Small white glazed organic form bowl with cut-out and inset fused glass decoration. Signed on the underside: 555, Italy. Minor blue glaze bleed on the white glaze (photo 2). The bowl closely resembles a sinkhole or Grotte della Poesia (caves of poetry) found deep in Puglia, Italy. The Grotte della Poesia is said to have been a favorite swimming spot for an ancient princess, the sight of her swimming there inspired poets--thus the name Caves of Poetry.
