Mid Century Ceramic Wall Plaque Features Young Girl. By Ruth Faktor. (B 1937)
An early example abstract ceramic wall tile plaque features a young girl by Ruth Faktor. Ruth Faktor was born in Ramat-Gan, Israel, in 1937. She studied ceramics with A. Doctor, Israel''s leading sculptor, and Z. Guri, a noted ceramist in Israel. From 1973 to 1977 Ruth studied at the Ramat-Gan Art School where she specialised in sculpture and modern art. Her ceramic bas-reliefs range in size from small wall pieces to larger building ornaments. The condition is very good. There are no chips, cracks or repairs to the tiles. The frame is scuffed. Ceramic panels and plaques adorned the walls of many homes in the 50’s and 60’s and were a regular feature in decorating. During this era, contemporary design was strongly influenced by Italy, France, Scandinavia and the United States. Unconventional shapes and forms were combined with bold, striking colours so as to compliment the radical, innovative architecture that was also popular then.
