About

Ceramic decorative bowl by Bruno Gambone (circa 1980s). A very unique ceramic which, on its exterior is coarse and tactile in a brown earthy clay with precisely incised lines. By contrast, the bowl surface is smooth, oatmeal hued with spiralling decoration of differently coloured pieces like beads in a necklace string. It reminds one of earthenware from the Roman era. There is much beauty and technique apparent in this fascinating bowl. It is clearly a work of art with trademark touches from the highly collectible master ceramicist from Florence, Italy, Bruno Gambone. In very good condition. There is a built-in slot for a hanging string. Signed on underside: 'Bruno Gambone - Italy'. Upon request, a video of the work will be provided. About the Artist: The Gambone ceramics have had two very distinct phases of artistic expression in their history. That of Guido Gambone, arguably Italy's most prominent contemporary ceramicist of the 1950s and '60s, and that of his son, Bruno Gambone, who is still at work. The father's work was more exuberant and colourful. Bruno, who returned to Florence in 1969 to keep the ceramic studio running after his father died, became intent on expressing his own very different artistic vision. For the most part, his work was influenced by '60s and '70s Minimalist art. The forms are more rectilinear, the decoration very simple and the tones muted. During a stint in New York, Bruno spent time with the likes of Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, and gained much experience in the fields of painting, sculpture, cinema and theatre. His ceramic pieces have become internationally collectible works of art. Dimensions: Height 6 cm / 2.4" Diameter 29.5 cm / 11.6".
