Not all pieces were finally selected, so some are unique.....
These are one-offs and signed in full "Elie van Damme"

Amphora Lamp Base St. Andries 1960's

Giant ceramic lampfoot edited by Amphora somewhere in the 1960's.
Typical Rogier vandeweghe 'funnel' form and kind of octopus eyes.
Almost all Amphora glazes were composed at the plant itself, and therefore recognizable... Vandeweghe employed a chemist to create unique glazes.
