With the power of Brutalism and the grace of Classicism this big lamp is a knockout. The massive triangular column with abstract high relief. A very stable firing crack to one side. An outstanding example of Sucsan's vibrant work, this lamp maybe the largest one he created.

The artist Charles Sucsan was born in Paris in 1932 to Hungarian parents and studied studied art there and in Montreal. Ceramist, sculptor, and painter, he is known for his large scale public murals and his decorative objects in ceramics working throughout the 1960s and 1970s. His work is in the collection of the Musée du Haut-Richelieu, Quebec.
