  • Description
    Bruno Gambone decorative ceramic bottle-shaped vessel with chalk-white and tan surface and chocolate glazed ribbon motif by (circa 1970s). With a modern rectangular base and lean, elongated neck its shape and finish have their origins in primitive works. However, the circular disk which tops the vessel puts it in the modern world. The lip that has a blue green glaze, graces the top is exceptionally desirable and very collectible. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age. 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 1960s, and that of his son, Bruno Gambone, who is still at work. The father's work was more exuberant and colorful. 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.

    This vase is not part of the mini series. It is on the smaller range of his work.
