About

Ceramic decorative vase by Alexandre Kostanda, Vallauris, France (circa 1970s). This piece forgoes Kostanda's trademark natural clay and rustic style for a more lustrous finish enhanced in this piece with delicate depictions of plant life with flower. The background colour is an elegant, subdued blue. On the other hemisphere of the globe-shaped piece is a pure blue as one may find on the clearest of Provençal nights. Kostanda created beautifully original vessels, such as vases, pitchers and pots which were both utilitarian and impressive works of art. Tactile and visually alluring, these pieces are collected internationally by his devotees, one of the founders of the Accolay workshops. In very good condition. Signed on the bottom: 'Kostanda' and stamped, 'Vallauris'. Upon request, a video of this piece may be provided. 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 1949-1953 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: Height 19 cm / 7.5" Diameter 20 cm / 7.9".
