      thank you vetraio50, racer4four, and AmberRose! i think it's older than my other pieces. i like it because it reminds me of my paternal grandfather who died in '74. he had a big, victorian home filled w/ african art and modern furnishings like this one and other very elegant pieces of bertoia, knoll, etc...

      Thank you Artistinside. i agree that it's a keeper. the size of it is really substantial, which i like. so many of the fat lava pieces are smaller when you see them in person, whereas this piece really fills up the space beautifully. i wasn't familiar w/ Alfaraz Pottery until you mentioned it. it reminds me [somewhat] of Bufano - one of my favorite artists of the 40s-60s.
