Ceramic Lion Sculpture by ceramicist Bruno Gambone, (c. 1970s). This large seated lion sculpture is truly a work of art. It is whimsical, yet beautiful in its use of the pared-down design elements associated with minimalism. Its chalk-white colour adds to its intrigue with just a patch of glazed brown over its smiling mouth. The features 'drawn' into the form render it simple and childlike. Unusually desirable and collectible, this earthenware piece will not only refine the look of your home or office, but put a smile on your face for years to come as well. In excellent vintage condition. Signed: 'Gambone Italy'.

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. Towards the latter part of the Seventies, Bruno created a series of ceramics dedicated to imaginary animals. For the most part, however, 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.
