48 Alev Ebuzziya Siesbye (Turkey; 1938) Lilac Bowl 1984 Stoneware; ht. 7, dia. 11 in. Siesbye was born in Turkey and studied sculpture before moving to Copenhagen in 1963 absorbing the cool chic of Scandinavian modern forms as can be seen in this elegant bowl. The upward gradation of color from lilac into a more muted purple-brown in the work gives the surface richness and depth. Despite its symmetrical perfection of form, this bowl is coiled and not thrown. It begins with an invisible foot about the size of a coin and then floats upward, ending with a thin, revealing band of unglazed clay. Exhibited: Solo Exhibition (Siesbye’s first in the United States) Garth Clark Gallery, New York 1984. $5,000 - $6,000
