Set of Two Ceramic Horses by Bruno Gambone, Italy, circa 1970s

About

Set of two ceramic horses by Bruno Gambone, circa 1970s. Untamed, free and strapping, these two ceramic horses were created in Gambone's signature chalk-white glaze - one with the addition of dark brown markings on the mane, tail and body. They are very elegant and charming and very collectible. A stylish addition to your home or office. In excellent vintage condition. Signed: 'Gambone'. These charming and seductive pieces are being offered as a single set of two or would be considered for sale on an individual basis. Please inquire by message. A short video of the pieces can be provided upon request. 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. Dimensions (Both): H 19 cm (7.48") L 15.5 cm (6.1") W 5 cm (1.97")
