Sculptural Bowl/Wall-Plaque by Stig Lindberg

About

A unique, massive (very heavy) stoneware bowl with a marvelous, typically Lindbergian figure -- a ball of a head, lightly bearded and weeping from both eyes. Stig Lindberg's incised signature on the underside is accompanied by a very rarely-seen mark: a little rectangle containing an eye, an unusual stamp of approval awarded by the piece's creator. This "eye" mark, which appears on very few of Stig Lindberg's studio pieces, signifies that he regarded the just-completed bowl as a particularly special piece, the cream of his recent crop. I think he was right.
