Ivan Puni. Ceramic candy bowl with pagoda glaze, mid-20th century.

IVAN ALBERTOVICH PUNI (1892-1956). LA PAGODE. A small ceramic candy bowl with a provocative signature on the back of La Pagode, Puni. In the title, the author probably alludes to the first floor of the pagoda - the basis of all syncretic spirituality. And then the monpasier folded in a pyramid turn into sacred truths. The form implements the organi-tech aesthetics, on which the honored masters of modernism worked in the middle of the 20th century: Picasso, Miro, Le Carbusier and Pugni. The candy bowl stylizes a living cage with spiritual color elements inside. It rests on three legs growing out of the body, typologically close to Saarinen and the basis of the universe. Size approx. 15 x 10 x 3.5 cm. Ivan Puni - Russian avant-garde artist, one of the representatives of futurism. After a brief artistic training in Paris, in 1912-1913, he moved to St. Petersburg. Together with the artist Ksenia Boguslavskaya, whom he was married to since 1913. Co-author of avant-garde exhibitions and shocking events.
