Ceramic Figure by Helena Samohelová


Helena Samohelová is a fascinating ceramist from Prague with a strongly individual style. Since the 1960s (when this piece was made) she has enjoyed acclaim at international ceramics competitions, and in gallery and museum exhibitions, while her architectural ceramics enliven the walls of many public spaces in Europe. This beautiful figure, very representative of Samohelová's early work, perfectly captures the youthful, utopian whimsy of the late-1960s. Of all of the ceramics I am currently offering, this piece is a particular favorite.
