About

French ceramic vase by Alexandre Kostanda, (circa 1960s). This beautiful cylindrical vessel presents a misty appearance with natural earth tones in brown, beige and delicate hints of yellow. In addition to being visually stunning, it is very tactile as well. In very good condition. Signed on the underside: 'A. Kostanda Vallauris' along with the stamp of the town. 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 28 cm / 11" Diameter 8.5 cm / 3.3".
