Offered is an art pottery vase from Hungary by Livia Gorka (1925-2011) made in the 1950’s. This abstract expressionistic vase is off-white with black and orange stripes and white interior. The vase measures approximately 9 ¼ ” (H) 4 ¾”. It is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and signed on the base as shown. Livia Gorka, considered to be a rebel, took her certificate as a master potter in 1947. A freelancing artist, she worked in the Gorka workshop in Veroce until 1959 when she opened her own studio. At the Gorka workshop she worked as an apprentice to her father Geza Gorka who is considered one of the founders of modern Hungarian ceramic art. Today Ms. Gorka is considered to be an important modern artist who developed her work in isolation from the West under difficult circumstances behind the Iron Curtain; and her reputation is comparable to her fathers. She was a member of the Association of Hungarian Artist's (1959) and the Hungarian Art Fund later MAOE (1955) and IAC.
