About

Vintage ceramic flower vase by Alexandre Kostanda (circa 1960s). The cylindrical vase presents a misty appearance with natural earth tones in brown, beige with surprises in blue hues. Incised lines randomly placed create visual interest and are tactile at the same time. In very good vintage condition. Signed on the underside: 'A. Kostanda Vallauris'. Upon request a video of the piece may be provided. 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 to 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 27.5 cm / 10.8" Diameter 9 cm / 3.5".
