About the Artist:
Bruno Gambone (1936 - 2021) is an Italian ceramist and the son of Guido Gambone, one of Italy's most prominend ceramists in the 1950 and 1960s. Bruno took over his father's Florence studio after he died in 1969. While Guido's work was exuberant and colorful. Bruno made a name for himself by expressing his own very different artistic vision. For the most part, his work was influenced by 1960s and 1970s Minimalist art. The forms are more rectilinear, the decoration very simple and the tones muted.
During a stint in New York, Bruno spent time with the likes of Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, and gained much experience in the fields of painting, sculpture, cinema and theatre. His ceramic pieces have become internationally collectible works of art.

Size: 17 x 20 x 13 H cm.
