Set of two ceramic vases/cups by Alexandre Kostanda (circa 1960s). This pair of beautiful vessels - one slightly shorter than the other - present a misty appearance with earth tones in brown, beige and delicate yellows. They may be displayed together on a shelf or table, or separately in the same room as a means of tying the décor together. In addition to being visually stunning, they are also very tactile and natural. In excellent vintage condition. Signed on the bottoms: 'A. Kostanda Vallauris'. A video clip of these pieces may be provided upon request. 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.
