Description A large stoneware jar by Paul Chaleff (1947-) made in 1987 and was purchased directly from the artist's studio in New York. Wood fired ceramic vessel with hand-cut lower body and pronounced surface firing marks and ash glaze. It is marked with the artist's incised signature and date 87. Also comes with a handwritten note from the collector and an exhibition invitation postcard of the similar works. This piece has a very strong Japanese wabi-sabi appeal which is the aesthetic influence of the aritst's work and makes a visually arresting center piece for any interior.
"Paul Chaleff is known for his large scale wood fired ceramic sculptures and vessels. He also created a large body of wheel thrown functional vessels. His vessels are strongly influenced by Japanese pottery, especially the work of one of Japan’s National Living Treasures, Takeshi Nakazato. Chaleff was one of the first American potters using a Japanese style Anagama kiln and became a leader in the introduction of this form of wood-burning kiln.
In 1989, he began a regular collaboration with the British sculptor Sir Anthony Caro. Over a period of thirteen years, they created nearly 50 works, both figurative and abstract. Caro’s sculpture has had direct influence on Chaleff’s work as has the sculpture of Isamu Noguchi, and the ceramics of John Mason and Lucie Rie."
Biography is from the Mark Project.
