Italian Industrial Style Ceramic Vase / Sculpture by Alessio Tasca (1986)
Modern, industrial-style ceramic vase (1986) by Alessio Tasca (born 1929). Minimalist, abstract snail-shaped ceramic vase in charcoal-coloured glaze with bold line motif and subtly painted foliage. Combining an industrial look inspired by Japanese minimalism it is absolutely stunning. Both a vase and a beautiful sculpture all at once. In very good overall condition. A rare piece with both signature and date, along with original maker's mark on underside of work. A short video of this piece may be provided upon request.
