Huge and fantastic original Bjorn Wiinblad sculpture, that is a bowl on a pedestal. This is a ceramic piece that is big enough to use as a centerpiece on a table or sideboard. Measuring 12 inches high and 12 inches across, it's one of the larger Wiinblad creations. This is a modernist representation of a woman, in that round faced Danish style that Mr. Wiinblad perfected during his long career. He was born in 1918 and died in 2006, in Denmark, and during his career he successfully designed for several European companies, including Rosenthal. This piece is not part of that commercial work, this is an original ceramic artwork, hand painted, and signed by him and dated 1986. The clay is a beige stoneware, with a delft style blue on white glaze. This piece is very 3 dimensional, with attachments such as the flowers and leaves on her ears, and her hands holding a cup. The bowl on the top is large , 9 inches by 4 inches, so you can use it as a fruit bowl. I can just see this whimsical piece decorated for the holiday table. Bjorn Wiinblad's designs are full of exuberant, happy people; just makes you smile. This is a particularly large example of his own ceramic studio work, and it is in excellent condition. No chips, no lines, no repairs, no crazing. All perfect and ready for your collection.
