A pair of Vienna Secession ceramic candle holders in the form of putti holding flowers by Michael Powolny for Weiner Keramik in his signature stark black and white, circa 1910.

Powolny was born in Judenburg, Austria in 1871 and was trained in the art of pottery from an early age, eventually becoming a professor at the Kunstgewerbeschule, Vienna where he studied. In 1897 he went on to help form the Vienna Secession movement; a group of young artists and architects who helped bring modernism to continental Europe alongside such names as Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser. Powolny founded the Wiener Keramik with Berthold Loffler in 1906, it then became the Gmundner Keramik six years later. Both Powolny and Loffler also designed pieces for the Wiener Werkstatte.

Condition - One candlestick has an insert missing.

Measures - 18cm H x 12cm D
