About

Midcentury ceramic pitcher / vase by Alexandre Kostanda (circa 1960s). This beautiful vessel presents a misty appearance with earth tones in brown and beige over a hazy, delicate white glazed base. In addition to being visually stunning, the piece is also very tactile, reminiscent of stone and earth. In very good vintage condition commensurate with age. Signed on the bottoms: 'A. Kostanda Vallauris'. 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 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 H 18.5 cm / 7.3" W (with handle) 16 cm / 6.3" W (without handle) 13 cm / 5.1".
