Stunning 60S Studio Pottery 5 Branch candelabra Hanna Lore Hombordy

This very unusual studio pottery candelabra, though not signed, is attributed to the artist, Hanna Lore Hombordy.

Hanna Lore Hombordy (n�e Galle) holds a BFA, with honors, from the School of Art and Design, Pratt Institute, New York. Before moving to Ventura, Calif. in 1973 her main occupation was in the field of creative design and graphic arts. She was employed as a designer by General Electric Co. in the Appearance and Design department; Houbignat, Inc. doing packaging design; and advertising agencies in New York doing catalog design, newspaper ads, and illustrations. Since 1973 most of her art has been three-dimensional.

Recent work has been included in twenty national juried shows and in 1987 she received the Monarch Best Tile Award. In California, she won an Award of Merit at the State Fair. Locally, she has received numerous awards, among them 1st place in the Thousand Oaks City Competition, the Oxnard Art Association Competition, the Ventura Assembly of the Arts and the Ventura County Fair. She has had fourteen solo exhibits in the southern California area. Hombordy works at her studio home in Ventura, Calif. She creates clay and sculpture and vessels as well as decorative custom tiles and house numbers. She does research and experimental work in clay and uncommon fine art materials such as expanded polystyrene foam. Discoveries in airbrushing on clay are documented in the December 1991 issue of Ceramics Monthly. An article on her work has been published in Ceramic Review, the British ceramics magazine. Recent publications include: Pottery Making Illustrated (Spring 1999) and Clay Times (November 2000 and 2001).

This piece probably dates to around the 1960s and is in very good condition with no chips or cracks. It would make an eye-catching centrepiece to a table and measures 38.5 cms tall x 22 cms max wide.

I'll leave the pics to describe this best. Please note any other items displayed are not included, but to give an idea of scale.

Would the successful bidder please make contact via email or phone within 24 hours of the auction close to notify me of their intentions regarding payment & collection/delivery. My contact details will be noted on the invoice sent upon auction close. Would International Bidders please note that payment from overseas can only be accepted via Pay Pal. UK TRANSACTIONS: 1. Personal Cheque: I allow 5 working days' clearance of cheques from banking, so please bear this in mind if you require your item quickly. As we are in a village, it is not always possible to bank cheques on the day of receipt. You might want to consider an alternative method, if so. Would you please make cheques payable to J. Willis - not Owl Cottage Collectables. 2. Pay Pal: If you wish to pay by Debit or Credit Card it is easy to do so via Pay Pal. It is the Seller who is charged for this service and while we do not pass this cost on to the customer, we would appreciate prompt payment via Pay Pal. It can take up to 5 days for a Pay Pal payment to be transferred to our bank account - so if you delay payment by Pay Pal, this delays our reimbursement costs to that extent + the extra 5 days! 3.Please email for arrangements if you are planning to collect personally. Please note that our courier's driver is not authorised to accept cash on our behalf, representing, as they do, a separate company. We will notify you upon close of the transaction if we are able to offer personal delivery, in which case an alternative method of payment might be possible. Please email in advance to ensure this is possible. NON-PAYMENT Unfortunately, I have now had my fair share of non-paying bidders so I regretfully have to point out that a Payment Reminder will be sent automatically after 3 days via Ebay. After 4 days a Non-Paying Bidder dispute will be opened in compliance with Ebay's Unpaid Items Policy, and if no satisfactory response is received within 4 days of that, the item will be re-offered. There should be no necessity for it ...
