Victor Spinski Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1940 - d. 2013

Victor Spinski was influenced by the Yixing artists of eastern China. He was a leading figure in the avant-garde ceramics movement of the 1960s and ‘70s, and held a patent on the Ceramic Photo Emulsion process that produced the ceramic decals he used in his trompe l'oeil ceramic assemblages. Known for these sculptural still life compositions of common everyday objects, for example paper cups in a cardboard box, tools, paint cans or dishes in sink. Many of the assemblages contain objects that are convincingly of material other than ceramic. Spinski created the cast and constructed ceramic objects then spent hours perfecting the surface with decals and china painting.
