A Mid-Century Giovanni DeSimone ceramic vase/canister with different patterns on 3 sides . The DeSimone ceramics studio began in the 1960s and produced both dinnerware and serving pieces as well as decorative pieces. During his most prolific period, there was anywhere from four to six artisans who worked for him and helped with production.
The colors and themes were consistent throughout, though each decorator had their own sort of style. Giovanni DeSimone was born in 1930 in Palermo, Italy (Sicily) to a pair of Italian aristocrats.
As a young child he traveled to Somalia, and his experiences there clearly stuck with him and inspired his life’s work, which demonstrates an appreciation of primitivism and the cubist movement that was popularized by Picasso, Matisse and Gauguin in the early 1900s. DeSimone passed away in 1991. His work is valued and highly collectable.
A tiny chip Mark only on the lid, consistent with age, but extremely collectible
