Guido Gambone (1909-1969) was an Italian potter who had his own workshop in Florence and made many stoneware pieces. His pottery was covered in thick, colorful, lavalike glazes. Text in Italian only but pictures and descriptions are self-explanatory. This book is probably the best and most complete book ever published about Guido Gambone. Every serious collector should have a copy of this book. Profusely Illustrated with Full Color and Black & White pictures. A must have for every modern collector with a wealth of information. This book is in new condition but the jacket has some minor shelf wear. Otherwise, a perfect copy.
This is a hard to find Italian monograph about Guido Gambone.
Guido Gambone became intrigued with ceramics as a creative medium at an early age and eventually
became one of the undisputed leaders of the Italian modernist ceramics movement. He was a true master of his craft and excelled in creating artistic objects in beautiful bold colors. Most of them are breathtakingly beautiful, much more so when viewed in person.
Guido Gambone's beautifully glazed mid centery modern ceramic work is more diverse than many of his colleagues, but as a body of work still holds together with a consistency in color, biomorphic form, and primitivistic decoration.
Guido Gambone passed away in 1969, but his son Bruno Gambone is carrying on the tradition of high quality Italian ceramics bearing the Gambone name.
