Perignem : Brutalist "Bullet" Vase. 1958

We came across this stunning 'brutalist' vase from 1958, the period when the real Perignem style was developed. Several young artist were given the chance to express themselves under the guidance of Laurent Vandeweghe. This resulted in the real 'kunstkeramiek' style from Perignem wich we love so much!...
The heaviest grog (chamotte) clay was used for this particular vase. Thin brown glaze in combination with running metallic black glaze at the top....
