PLEASE NOTE: This item is only available exclusively for pickup at our Oakville location.
This evocatively elegant work of Swedish contemporary design is by Alf Ekberg (b.1945-d. 2016) for his art pottery studio Källna. Ekberg worked with sculptures in stoneware, bronze, and glass and over the course of his career, had exhibitions in Denmark and Germany as well as in a large number of galleries around Sweden.
This particular piece is a stunning Charcoal hued stoneware sculpture of the Damson fruit that presents his popular juxtaposition with the gold crackle gilt glaze. Ekberg's signature combination of pairing matte and unpolished stone textures with luxuriant metals is very much evident in this piece.This stunning piece actualises many key principles of Minimalist and Modernist design influences, with a focus on bringing forth the beauty in the base materials.
