Hope someone will like these pictures of a ceramic lady by Marek Cecula. It's an early example, by Polish-born potter Cecula, who initially learnt about ceramics in Israel before moving to Brazil and then to New York.
Since making these sorts of pottery figures, he has completely changed his style and gone modernist and minimalist.

I found this figure at Winchester antiques fair a few months ago. The vendor had a table full of glass and this one ceramic piece which he didn't like and hadn't bothered to research - the back stamp is difficult to read. I gave it a good home, even if the lady does look as though she's in need of a shave. Happy

how strange! a co-incidence that is. ... i saw the same stand and the same lady, but when the seller was at Midhurst antiques fair. He's a regular at both places. I picked it up and liked it, but money being tight, i put it down and bought something else at the fair. I congratulate you on your impeccable taste! p.s whereabouts in Hants are you?

can't remember if i even asked - i had my eye on several other things at the fair so was rationing myself. If i remember correctly (and assuming Naomi and I did see the same stall holder and it's not just a fluke of co-incidence that there was two similar stalls), the guy had some really lovely things - mainly glass as Naomi has said. So, perhaps ceramics wasn't really his thing - although he did say it looked like Bjorn Winblad, so he must've done some kind of research.

What a coincidence. Happy
The bloke didn't seem to like it and only asked 15 - I thought I'd misheard; I was expecting it to be way out of my price range.

I have been to the Midhurst fair the once - a number of years ago - but it was too expensive. I prefer to go to the Bank Holiday ones at Winchester, and Wokingham on the first Sun of the month. Plus some of the small fairs like Eversley, Pangbourne and Hartley Wintney.
Most of the time I do the rounds of the local charity shops in & around Basingstoke. Very occassionally Newbury, but they're a bit expensive.
