Ceramic Wall Relief by Clyde Burt

$3,500

About

A terrific wall piece by ceramic artist Clyde Burt (1922-1981). This work was inspired by Jeanne-Paule Marie, better known as Sœur Sourire, "The Singing Nun" who was internationally famous in the mid 1960s. Some of Burt's signature styles are evident in this piece including the stylized faces, and geometric abstracted space around the figures. Clyde Burt (1922-1981) is recognized as an important figure in the American studio ceramics movement. He studied at Fort Wayne Art School, the Cape Cod School of Art, and under Maija Grotell at Cranbrook. His work is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum. It is hand signed on the front lower right hand corner.
