Extremely rare vase designed by Rogier Vandeweghe and made by Amphora, Belgium 1960s. It’s a large-sized vase with an extremely rare mint-green color. The vase looks beautiful with its speckles and lines all over. One cool feature is the red-brown ring at the bottom – it’s like a separate base. The shape of the vase is interesting, starting slim at the top, getting wider in the middle, and a bit narrower at the bottom. There’s a sharp line in the middle that makes it look visually pleasing. It’s a unique and eye-catching piece of art. In excellent original condition.

Rogier Vandeweghe established himself as an independent potter in Sint Andries, near Bruges, after leaving the ceramic workshop Per Ignem, which he had founded with his brother Laurent in 1947. Under the name Amphora, from 1960 on, his quickly expanding workshop produced entirely hand-thrown vessels. His modern forms – with glazes developed in-house and experimental firing techniques – rapidly earned the workshop an international reputation.

 

Participation in major contemporary exhibitions led to numerous awards and acquisitions by leading ceramic museums across Europe. In 1975 all production ceased, and the workshop faded into obscurity. The present publication is a tribute to Rogier Vandeweghe and his wife, Myranna Pyck, for their unwavering commitment and their continuous quest for high-quality modern beauty in their ceramics.
