Pair of Farsta Vases by Wilhelm Kåge

About

Wilhelm Kåge, originally a student of Matisse, became the grand old man of Swedish ceramics, and creator of the 20th century's greatest series of studio ceramics: the famous Farsta collection he produced at Gustavsberg in the 1940s and 1950s. These two vases, each a unique studio piece made in 1956, are exquisite examples of the line, with their highly developed organic-derived forms, subtle surface decoration, and complex glazing. Each is a variant of two of the most sought-after Farsta forms. Though available for sale individually, as a pair they act as aesthetic balances to each other; the massive everted mouth of the blue vase complementing the brown Spirea vase's emphatic foot. Each Farsta vase is fully signed, with all of the appropriate impressed marks and signatures to the underside of each vase.
