Round vintage pitcher w/ pinched beak - A. Kostanda (1921-2007) Vallauris 6¾"

SKU: 18585

This pitcher, featuring a distinctive pinched spout, is a creation of Alexandre Kostanda (1921-2007), a renowned ceramist known for his expertise in blending traditional and modern ceramic techniques. Born in Poland in 1921, Kostanda moved to France, where he apprenticed with Louis Giraud in Vallauris in 1936. He later established his own atelier in 1953, combining clays from Cluny and Vallauris to create high-temperature stoneware.

Kostanda's work evolved over the years, initially characterized by sensuous and plastic forms, and later by more refined designs with floral and abstract motifs. This pitcher exemplifies his mature style, featuring a rich, natural glaze that transitions smoothly from earthy browns to muted greens. The pinched spout adds a unique, functional detail, showcasing Kostanda's technical finesse and aesthetic sensibility. This piece reflects his dedication to creating ceramics that balance rustic charm with fine craftsmanship, making it a wonderful addition to any pottery collection.
