Two ceramic candle holders by Jan van der Vaart in 1976 from his own workshop. The work is signed on the bottom with: 'VdVaart', 76 and his signature wheel. Jan van der Vaart belongs to the first generation of ceramic artists that revived the practice of ceramics in the Netherlands in the 1950s. He introduced a new vision on form and colour, based on the Bauhaus tradition. When he gets appointed as head teacher of ceramics at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, his influence on the development of Dutch ceramics is easy to trace. Around fifteen years later his work is internationally acknowledged.
