About

Midcentury, small, ceramic jug by Alexandre Kostanda (circa 1960s). In his trademark natural clay and rustic style, Kostanda created beautifully original vessels, such as vases, pitchers and pots which were both utilitarian and stunning works of art. This is a very delightful, diminutive piece which features a misty appearance with earth tones in brown, beige and a slightly blue-tinged white. Tactile and visually alluring, Kostanda's pieces are collected internationally by his devotees. Kostanda is also associated with the founding of the Accolay workshops. In fair vintage condition commensurate with age and usage. Signed on the bottom: 'A. Kostanda, Vallauris'. Upon request, a video clip of this piece may be provided. Please also view the accompanying photos to this listing to appreciate its condition and aesthetic qualities. 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: H 12 cm / 4.7" W (with handle) 14 cm / 5.5" D 10 cm / 3.9".
