Rare studio art pottery fish vase Eric Chuy Boss 1986
A wonderful and rare Studio art vase by Eric & Chuy Boss done in the sgrafitto style (technique of scratching off glaze to reveal underlying clay before firing). Hand signed and dated 1986. One side has the black fish swimming with the white fish amongst seaweed with a light sponged mauve background. On the reverse side it has a butterfly with a dark mauve sponged background with a black scrolling floral on a white background. The entire art concept, is of light and dark. Vase measures 6 1/2" tall and is in pristine condition. Medium is of red clay. Items by this artist are so scarce I have just found one on the entire internet in the past year at a gallery that sold for 750.00, and not so wonderful as this piece offered here! If you would like to see the other vase, go to: www.bridgesovertime.com. I have no history on the artists, and any info would be greatly appreciated.
