A BIT OF HISTORY
Jan van der Vaart (1931 - 2000) was an influential and trendsetting ceramist from the 20th century, known as founder of the abstract-geometric ceramics in the Netherlands.
Van der Vaart's work is of clear form, focusing on the object's use and often undecorated. His design characteristics are blocky, simple and sober with pronounced clean lines as well as soft gliding, often sloping surfaces.
His work is distinguished by the special tinted glazes, mainly the bronze glaze which he applied to his vases, and his white vases were also notable, with geometric shapes and generally are considered to be his trademark.
Good vintage condition, there are no cracks or scratches to the main body of the vase. There is one chip on the inner rim of the vase, measuring c. 5 x 3 mm and a light use mark on the inner surface of the vase towards the base. Both marks can be viewed in the photos which are part of the condition report.
The base of the vase bears the Rosenthal Studio Line insignia stamp and Van der Vaart's signature.
