About

Small ceramic vase by Alexandre Kostanda, (circa 1960s). This ceramic may be diminutive but it is elegant like Kostanda's larger pieces. It presents a misty appearance with earth tones in brown, beige and delicate yellows. It may be displayed on a shelf or table, or on our desk in your workplace. In addition to being visually stunning, they are also very tactile and natural. In very good condition. Signed on the underside: 'A. Kostanda Vallauris'. About the artist: Alexandre Kostanda (born 1924) 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 colors, Kostanda preferred to create with colors 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 11.5 cm / 4.5" Diameter 7.0 cm / 2.8".
