About

Ceramic vase with flat-black glaze and verdigris drip motif by ceramicist Bruno Gambone, (circa 1980s). This elegant narrow-opening bottle-shaped vase is a work of art. There is a rectangular body with soft, curvy shoulders leading to a graceful, elongated neck with rounded opening. A sumptuous flat-black glaze graces the surface interrupted only by a wide mid-level stripe in a bronze-colour with decorative verdigris effect from the top of the neck. Gambone ceramics have become true collector's items because of their uncommonly elegant finishes and shapes. This piece would be a stylish addition to your home or office. In fair vintage condition with subtle surface crack which most likely occurred during production. This does not affect the integrity or overall appearance of the piece but has been priced accordingly. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Signed: 'Gambone Italy'. This gallery also holds a smaller vase which together would make an ideal pair. A short video of the piece can be provided upon request. 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: H 34 cm / 13.4" W 15 cm / 5.9" D 8 cm / 3.1"
