Virgilio Ciminaghi, (1911 – 2001) was born in Milan and studied at the famed Brera. he was a noted sculptor in Italy, but he also did outstanding and very distinctive ceramics that express his sculptural sensibilities. This pair of vases is fabulous. The size is impressive – 40 x 19 inches. It probably dates from the 1960’s.
The form is very sculptural, and the glaze if beautifully done, with striking but harmonious colors and interesting texture.
We have the pair, but can sell them separately. They would be a strikingly dramatic addition to any contemporary decor.
