Sculptural bowl

Designer Clément Massier French
James Vibert Swiss

Not on view

Massier specialized in pottery with a metallic iridescent glaze inspired by medieval Spanish lusterware. This bowl is the product of his collaboration with the Swiss Symbolist sculptor James Vibert. The iridescent effect of Massier's luster glaze works in harmony with the sculptural imagery, creating an otherworldly, sea-like environment for Vibert's water nymphs.
