Set of Four Sassi ‘Grès’ Vases by Bruno Gambone, circa 1980s

About

Set of four stoneware Sassi (Grès) model Primitive style vases with chalk-white glaze by ceramicist Bruno Gambone, (designed 1984). These graceful, narrow-opening flower vases are true works of art. Both visually stunning and tactile, their subtle colouring is marked with seemingly ancient markings drawn on their surface reminiscent of pre-historic cave drawings. The texture has the feel of beach stones with their natural imperfections. The necks however are thoroughly modern, smooth and uniform in colour. This is rare Bruno Gambone work, uncommonly desirable and very collectible. An elegant and stylish addition to your home or office. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed: 'Gambone Italy'. This bottle set is referenced in a photo page in a book on the works of Gambone: 'Bruno Gambone La Forma del Racconto' (please see photos). A short video clip of this set will be provided upon request. About the artist: The Gambone ceramics have had two very distinct phases of artistic expression in their history. That of Guido Gambone, arguably Italy's most prominent contemporary ceramicist of the 1950s and '60s, and that of his son, Bruno Gambone, who is still at work. The father's work was more exuberant and colourful. Bruno, who returned to Florence in 1969 to keep the ceramic studio running after his father died, became intent on expressing his own very different artistic vision. For the most part, his work was influenced by '60s and '70s Minimalist art. The forms are more rectilinear, the decoration very simple and the tones muted. During a stint in New York, Bruno spent time with the likes of Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, and gained much experience in the fields of painting, sculpture, cinema and theatre. His ceramic pieces have become internationally collectible works of art. Dimensions in Height of the four ceramics (in order of first photo): H Bottle 1: 34 cm / 13.4" H Bottle 2: 34 cm / 13.4" H Bottle 3: 32 cm / 12.6" H Bottle 4: 24 cm / 9.4".
