Fab Fantoni

The most beautiful Fantoni vase we have ever seen just arrived at the shop. The greens and purples remind me so much of Monet's later paintings of water lilies in his garden at Giverny. This is a large and imposing vase at 16 inches tall and dates to the 1950s.
 Marcello Fantoni was born in Florence in 1915. In 1934 he graduated as an art teacher from the Art Institute of Porta Romana Florence, he then set up his first studio in 1936 in a converted stable in Florence. In 1946 he opened a newer and larger studio and workshop in Florence.
  In 1970 he founded the International School of Ceramic Art at his workshop on via Bolognese in Florence, where he continued to work and teach until his death in 2011.
