About

French ceramic decorative cachepot by Alexandre Kostanda, Vallauris, France (circa 1960s). In his trademark natural clay and rustic style, Kostanda created beautifully original vessels, such as vases, pitchers and pots which were both utilitarian and stunning works of art. Tactile and visually alluring, these pieces are collected internationally by devotees of Kostanda, one of the founders of the Accolay workshops. In good overall condition. Perfect for a small house plant or simply beautiful decoration for the home or workplace. Signed on the underside: 'A. Kostanda, Vallauris'. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. About the Artist: Alexandre Kostanda (1924 - 2007) was an apprentice to Louis Giraud in Vallauris, France on the French Riviera. Kostanda later became head of the studio from 1949 to 1953 where his mother, Irene, had also worked for Giraud as a decorator. In 1953 Kostanda founded his own studio. He brought Cluny sandstone clay with him which supported higher cooking temperatures, mixing it with the soil from Vallauris. When others migrated towards bright, shimmering colours, Kostanda preferred to create with colours that retained the natural elements of the clay. His ceramics' rustic appearance surprises with its finesse and balance revealing an exceptional technical mastery of his art. Dimensions: H 12 cm / 4.7" Dia 15 cm / 5.9".
