Guido Gambone (1909-69) is one of the most important ceramicists of the Twentieth Century. He worked in Italy for a number of factories and developed an original style that fused together the primitivism of rural Italy with modernism in a distinctive and highly influential manner. In some respects his work is reminisent of Picasso's innovative ceramics though Gambone began experimenting with ceramics in this way about a decade before Picasso. His work was hugely influential on Italian ceramics and style in general in the post-war years. He is one of the great names in mid-century design.
