Burn Baby, Burn.... Amphora Copper Reduction 1964

During the early 1960's Rogier Vandeweghe was experimenting a lot with forms and glazes.
This copper reduction glaze is a typical result from those inspiring experiments...
In 1964 Rogier won  the Golden Medal 
in the International Ceramic Competition in Faenza with a copper reduction vase similar to the one above.
The simple curves and the "burned" surface work perfectly together...
Perfect condition, signed twice.
Diameter ca 32 cm
