Untitled; NY Skyline
Burnished Earthenware; ht. 15, dia. 11 in.
Artist L. Buzio NY 1984 signature incised on base.
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Buzio worked in clay in New York since 1972, creating abstract volumes and cityscapes. She produced works that are unique for the medium, a distinctive fusion of painting and sculpture made of terracotta.
This piece, from 1984, has the "gray and cloudy skies" of the New York skyline giving both emotion to the painting skills of this artist as well as a form that leads the eye upward that elevates the vessel. This piece is a true masterwork of Buzio's talent. Sadly, Buzio recently passed away at the age of 66.
