Peter Voulkos (1924-2002; USA)

Untitled (Charger)


Stoneware and porcelain; dia. 19.5, ht. 3.75 in.  

Artist signature and date slip painted on verso.  

A beautiful gas-fired stoneware charger with porcelain pellet insets and deep punctures accentuated on the reverse with cobalt glaze. The appearance of Voulkos’ plates changed after his 1967 Milan visit with Lucio Fontana, the modern master of holes (buchi) and cuts (tagli). Thereafter his composition of lines and holes on plates was more formal and considered, evident here with his balanced punctures and incisions.
