The Big Bang

One of the most heralded names in Scandinavian pottery is that of Danish ceramicist Arne Bang. This taupe colored fluted bowl is dappled with a naturalistic touch of rust. It is one of his rarest shapes...and therefore quite collectible. The fluidity of the form belies its heavy stoneware weight. Created in the 1940's, this bowl is an earlier work by a prolific artisan. Marked with his AB monogram and a nice size measuring 10" in diameter and 4" in height.
