3 Cubist Art Deco Style Musicians Large Ceramic Sculptures
Three Cubist Art Deco Style Musicians Sculptures in Ceramic. These large statues are done in a French technique called Craquele (crackle ware). They are signed and numbered “N.R” (Natacha Roche) . Groups of ceramic musicians like these are very rare and unique. These were made in France in the 1980s intended for a limited edition of 200 that may never have been completed.
Their grand size and complicated shape for manufactured ceramic items made them difficult to fire consistently but these are perfectly rendered. I’ve only ever seen one for sale in the past- as a single piece – so a group of three is extremely rare. Their modernist design and shape would look great in a period Art Deco environment as well as a contemporary interior. The three pieces look stunning together in person.
