(Illinois, 1935-2019), with circular base issuing swirled flames. H. 44 in. x W. 27 in. x D. 26 in. John Bucci, who worked from a studio in Chicago, created concept cars, one of which "La Shabbla" was exhibited at the Cavalcade of Custom Cars at the 1964 World's Fair in New York City. Although pursued by a Detroit automaker he decided to remain independent. A Renaissance man, he never stopped creating. His drive led him to create both functional sculptural pieces such as tables and console bases as well as freestanding sculptures out of plexiglass, steel, found objects and wood.
