This unique studio piece bears postmodern Radical Deco design influences popular between the mid 1960s to the mid 1980s.
Designers from this movement were keen to overturn the Modernist principles of pure utilitarianism, the lack of ornamentation, mass production; and in turn, mass consumerism. The result was exploration into the blending of influences from historical styles and popular culture. Geometric ornamentation and the reinterpretation was particularly celebrated.
The simple but elegant cylinder form is glazed in a semi-matte but turquoise and is further decorated by a ring of raised and mildly geometric 'crystals' relief. The crystals are arranged naturally, mimicking natural crystals and the edge of the individual crystal is highlighted with a vivid indigo.
Excellent, no chips or cracks, there is mild crazing that is commensurable with the age of the piece - please see photos as part of the condition report. The underside of the vase base is signed by the ceramist.
