Two Sides of Toft

Among our favorite studio potters is Thomas Toft of Denmark. His hallmark is starkly contrasting white glaze on matte dark chocolate brown ceramic...and always in the most abstractly cubist configurations. This 14" tall oblong vase (decorated differently on either side) is a particularly rare and wonderful example of his work from the 1950s. There is a lightness to the material that belies it size and its very ability to have survived the test of time.
