About this item

Ceramic decorative vase with chalk-white surface and chocolate-brown drip motif on the top of the rectangular body, by ceramicist Bruno Gambone, (circa 1970s). This graceful narrow-opening decorative vase is a work of art. With a modern rectangular base and lean, elongated neck its shape and finish have their origins in primitive works. The chocolate-brown glaze with stripe graces the top of the base up to the neck; exceptionally desirable and very collectible, this earthenware piece would be an elegant and stylish addition to your home or office. In excellent vintage condition. Signed: 'Gambone Italy'. A short video clip of this piece may be provided upon request.
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.
