Large Ceramic Wall Mirror by François Lembo, circa 1960s-1970s

About

Inspired by Byzantine iconography, a very large rectangular, gilded glazed ceramic wall mirror by François Lembo (circa 1960s-1970s). With enameled ceramic cabochons in alternating colours of turquoise, ruby red and black, it is an unusually elegant piece of decorative art. Perfect for that space in your home or work place which is clamouring for attention. This piece is in good vintage condition commensurate with its age and usage. Signed on the mirror's backside: 'F Lembo'. Please see accompanying photos. A short video of the piece will be provided upon request. About the Designer: A native of Vallauris, François Lembo (1930-2013) started his pottery career in 1951 in the workshops of Calva and Rossignol. After his apprenticeship he worked for 3 years in his father-in-law, Marc Roussel's, studio, before opening his own in the famed town of Vallauris, France in 1960. The work of Roussel, influenced by Byzantine art, inspired Lembo to create mirrors, often decorated in the style of Russian icons. He produced a number of religious icons decorated with small ceramic beads and sold his work at "Terre de Provence" with considerable success in the 60s and 70s. He worked as a ceramicist for some 23 years and passed away in 2013. His son Renaud continues as a ceramicist in Vallauris. Dimensions: H 62.5 cm / 24.6" W 43 cm / 16.9" D 4 cm / 1.6" Dimensions of Mirror Glass: H 46 cm / 18.1" W 26.5 cm / 10.4".
