Mid-Century French Ceramic Bowl by Gilbert Valentin

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A sculptural, low bowl with a striking abstract design by the French ceramist Gilbert Valentin (1928-2001). Valentin masterfully combines a rich blue form with a white, moon-shaped disc, suggesting a stylized evening sky. His signature, dark gritty background glaze gives the piece a mysterious sense of depth. Signed with Valentin's Les Archanges pottery logo.
