Item specifics

Seller Notes: THIS IS A FANTASTIC POT BY AN IMPORTANT INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED POTTER, AND A TIMELY INVESTMENT.
Main Color:

BURNISHED NATURAL OXIDE SLIPS

 
WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS; A BEAUTIFULLY HAND THROWN AND DECORATED EARTHENWARE VASE BY INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED, SAN JUAN DE ORIENTE, NICARAGUAN, NICOYA ART POTTER, PEDRO GUERRERO. GUERRERO'S SAN JUAN DE ORIENTE STUDIO IS WELL KNOWN BY COLLECTORS THE WORLD OVER, AND HIS EFFORTS TO PRESERVE AND PROMOTE TRADITIONAL NICOYA FOLK CRAFTS ARE, TO ME, REMINISCENT OF THE EFFORTS MADE IN EARLY TWENTIETH CENTURY JAPAN AND ENGLAND, WITH THE MINGEI FOLK CRAFT MOVEMENT HEADED BY SHOJI HAMADA AND BEARNARD LEACH. PEDRO GUERRERO HAS MANAGED TO BRING FRESH LIFE AND SOPHISTICATION TO THE TRADITIONAL PRE-COLUMBIAN STYLE AND TECHNIQUES, AGAIN, SIMILAR TO HAMADA IN THE WAY THE CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACTION EMERGES FROM THE TRADITIONAL ROOTS IN A SEEMINGLY PRE-DESTINED, INHERENT PROGRESSION. THE MOTIF OF THIS PARTICULAR VASE, DEPICTS THE EARTH GODDESS LOOKING TO THE HEAVENS FOR INSPIRATION AND GUIDANCE, WITH A CONTRASTING COOL SEA GREEN BACKGROUND, SURROUNDING HER LIFE NURTURING, WARM EARTHY TONES. THE COLORED SLIPS ARE HAND BURNISHED TO A SOFT LUSTER AND FURTHER DELINEATED BY THE ARTISTS SKILLFUL USE OF "SCRAFITTO" ENGRAVING TECHNIQUES. THE SAME MOTIF ALSO APPEARS ON THE REVERSE SIDE OF THE VASE. (SEE PHOTOS). THE VASE IS SIGNED BY PEDRO GUERRERO, NICOYA, ON THE FOOT, AND MEASURES 8" HIGH BY 6" WIDE AND WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 2 LBS. PEDRO GUERRERO'S UNIQUE POTTERY IS WELL REPRESENTED IN BOTH PRIVATE COLLECTIONS, AND MUSEUMS THROUGH OUT THE WORLD, AND HE HAS RECEIVED NUMEROUS DISTINCTIONS AND AWARDS FOR HIS WORK, INCLUDING THE STATUS OF "LIVING TREASURE" FROM HIS NATIVE NICARAGUA. FROM AN INVESTMENT POINT OF VIEW, I THINK THAT THIS PIECE IS VERY REASONABLY PRICED, AND THAT GUERRERO, AND HIS WORK, ARE GROWING IN INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE, AND SOME DAY MAY SHARE THE SAME HIGH ESTEEM, AND COLLECTIBILITY AS THE LIKES OF, HAMADA AND LEACH RESPECTIVELY, TO THEIR OWN CULTURES. ON THE OTHER HAND YOU MAY SIMPLY ENJOY THIS WONDERFUL LITTLE POT, WITH THE VIBRANT SPANISH CUBIST INFLUENCES (THINK: PICASSO, MIRO AND BRAQUE) MERGING WITH THE UNDERLYING PRE-COLUMBIAN NICOYA ROOTS, AS MUCH AS I DO, AND MAY JUST WANT TO ACQUIRE IT FOR YOUR OWN PLEASURE AND HAPPINESS, REGARDLESS OF IT'S INVESTMENT POTENTIAL. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY INQUIRES THAT YOU MAY HAVE. GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING. SHIPPING TO BE DETERMINED BY INDIVIDUAL BUYERS NEEDS AND REQUIREMENTS.
