$ 695
  • Description
    Designer: Verna
    USA - Circa 1974
    Dimensions: 15" H x 11" DIA
    Condition: Very good vintage condition.

    Dive deep into a realm of artistic enigma with this remarkable abstract black glazed pottery sculpture, signed "Verna 1974." While the artist remains shrouded in mystery, the sheer genius of craftsmanship is undeniably evident in every curve and texture of this masterpiece.

    Standing at an impressive 15" H x 11" DIA, this sculpture seamlessly marries abstraction with the palpable. Its central sphere, richly textured, becomes the universe for 23 exquisite trumpet or mushroom-like protrusions. This dynamic blend of shapes and textures conjures images of a surreal, alien landscape, making it a perfect conversation starter for any setting.

    The depth of the glazes — a blend of black, dark brown, and dark green — might trick the eye into seeing a uniform black, adding another layer to its mystique. The connected pedestal base provides stability while accentuating the sculpture's other-worldly charm.

    While this piece remains in excellent condition, there is a testament to its journey: a discreet preexisting repair to one of the trumpets (see photos).

    Whether you're an avid art collector or someone with an eye for the unique, this unusual sculpture promises to be a standout piece in any collection. Let it grace your space with its abstract beauty and intriguing aura.
