Wall stoneware mobile, circa 1960-1970



What I like

I like this stoneware mobile, because it is made up of 20 plates of very fine stoneware, all different, both in their shape, which are variations around the square, but each with either one rounded corner, or two, one side curved, a stepped corner, or simply square! This creates an extremely interesting rhythm, a false repetition, an embroidery on the same theme, magnificently mastered!

On the other hand, each element bears a diverse decoration, with patterns of circles, eccentric circles, streaks, hexagons, and above all round cavities, possibly repeated: all this executed by hand or using cookie cutters to the cavities: we see the trace of the tool running on the surface of the earth, in other places, we are undoubtedly dealing with prints!!!

Either way, these are not castings, as the back is flat.

Finally, there is this range of colors: running from beige to sand, from brown to celadon, with an overall impression of bronze: it is an extremely soft, very refined palette…

In a small space, we can make our mind travel from tile to tile, both in depth and on the surface!

This is a true work of art, a painting that takes its place and will dialogue with your other works!

Technical description

Stoneware mobile made up of 20 stoneware plates on a square base adapted to each tile, with rich relief decoration of streaks, circles, stars, round holes, in a beige-sand-golden range.

These 20 thin plates are joined by metal rings and held by an exotic wood bar with rounded corners.

Around 1960-1970.

Two small losses and a cooking crack.

Mix & Match

This interesting piece by a ceramist, probably Scandinavian if we judge by the shape and the exotic wood used for the support bar, is a work of art that illuminates a wall with its presence. The beautiful research into the shapes of each tile and their assembly, their decoration each time different, with the refined range of colors, allows it to fully blossom, like any abstract painting.

Of course, we would like to compare it with other ceramic works from the same period: associating it with the floor lamp by Dijsktra, itself Dutch, with rich cetadon enamel would be judicious: but we can compare it with the rare vase by Jean de Lespinasse with asymmetrical decoration, also in ceramic!

On the walls, I would like to bring it into dialogue with the interesting painting “Viffer 1969” by Guillaume Leunens, with its very curious fused metal work, patinated and with a more geometric pattern!

For a set of colored ranges including bronze, I would consider the large tapestry by Enrique Broglia “Compositin metallica”, or the small tapestry by Daniel de Linière, “Nuit d’Espagne”, with small patterns on a beige background so typical from the 1960s!

As for the furniture, these are the creations of Pierre Guariche, including the friendly G10 armchairs, in blue or off-white: their pure lines, like those of the sculpture coffee table by Lodovico Acerbis, will give way to the poetry of our mobile!

Looking at the wall lamp, we are certain that we are dealing with a very talented ceramist, capable of creating very thin plates, all individualized by their shape and decoration. And an artist capable of creating a coherent work.
