About

Italian ceramic decorative jug / vase by Bruno Gambone (circa 1970s). The vessel has a purity of form, muted colour and demonstrated effortless beauty that is only created by Bruno Gambone. He transforms earthenware ceramics into works of art. With its sensuous curves, classical neck and spout, it transports its viewer to another era. The chocolate-coloured band encircling the body presents a drip motif that seems unintentional. It only adds delight and interest. Exceptionally desirable and very collectible, this elegant piece would be a stylish addition to your home or office. In good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed: 'Gambone - Italy'. A short video clip of this piece may 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 1960s, 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 1960s and 1970s 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 14.0 cm (5.5") Diameter 12.5 cm (4.9").
