Mari Simmulson Chartreuse and Taupe Textured Vase, 23cm
This item is available exclusively for pickup at our Oakville location.
This timelessly contemporary work of Swedish Mid Century design is by Mari Simmulson (b. 1911- d. 2000) for Upsala Ekeby. Simmulson was a celebrated Swedish ceramics designer and ceramicist, known for many series she designed at Upsala Ekeby which went on to become classics.
This hand-thrown and hand-glazed work comes from Simmulson's Peru series, designed in 1966. The series is characterised by the textured and tactile Chamotte earthenware forms, inscribed with Peruvian-inspired geometric symbols and jagged bands that encircle the body.
The glaze décor is a pairing of semi-glossed Chartreuse and matte Taupe that is further complimented by the semi-glossed Dark Espresso inscriptions. The form and décor of this piece are undeniably Modernist in design, highlighting the seamless harmony of function, form, and raw materials and a particularly rare find in size and form.
