Mario Barbaglia and Marco Colombo are without doubt two of the finest interior designers of their time. Lot 172, a pair of Dove table lamps are a fine example of their innovative product design with clean lines and a distinctive 'bird in flight' feeling. If you are looking to achieve a certain look or to make a design statement these lamps are sculpturally pleasing and would be a welcome addition in any modern design setting.
Also in the May sale is another stylistic designer, John Maltby who originates from Cleethorpes in Lincolnshire. He is one of our most respected potters and has been working with clay for over 50 years. His work is influenced by the landscape, weather, myths and legends and these days he favours making one-off pots rather than following form or tradition. Lots 365 and 366 are good examples of his abstract art. Lots 365 is an abstract studio pottery sculpture that is 19cm long and Lot 366 is a studio stoneware cylindrical abstract sculpture that is 28.5cm long.
