Description

This vase is undoubtedly one of the more unusual studio pottery pieces we’ve ever offered. The potter, Ron Krogh, was a ceramics instructor in Bountiful, Utah, in the late 1960’s. A piece of his pottery is in the permanent collection of the American Museum of ceramic art in Pomona, California. This heavy stoneware vase is “wrapped” in pottery pages printed from the Ogden, Utah Standard-Examiner dated July 21, 1969. On one side of the vase the headline is “Moon Walk,” while on the other side it’s “Apollo 11 Landing.” Another side recounts “Nixon Flies to Splashdown Site.” The rough stoneware itself is glazed on the interior in a greenish gray, while most of the exterior was left unglazed. Every inch of the surface of this vase is different and fascinating. It’s signed on the bottom by the artist, who dated the piece 71 beneath his signature.

  • Vintage item from the 1980s

This pie pan and its matching lid were made of grey stoneware with overall blue sponging by the Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery in Roseville, Ohio. They are in absolutely pristine, unused condition, with no marks, chips or cracks. The pie plate is 9 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep, while the lid is 10 inches in diameter and 4 inches tall to the top of the round knob handle. The set weighs 6 1/4 pounds and has impressed marks on the bottom that read: Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery Roseville, Ohio USA.

The Ransbottom brothers—Frank, Ed and Mort—started a pottery in 1900 that became the largest producer of stoneware jars. In the 1920’s, when stoneware jars were losing popularity, they merged with the Robinson Clay Products Company to become RRP, making bricks, sewer tiles and other clay products; they added kitchen wares in the 1930’s. They proved to be one of the few companies that made it into the 21st century producing serviceable stoneware (they went out of business in 2005).

This spongeware set can be used for your favorite pie recipe or as a covered serving dish and looks great sitting on a cupboard shelf.

Description

This one of a kind original sculpture was made of heavy natural clay, hollow but weighing nine pounds, two ounces. The subject is a very sensitively portrayed woman’s head that was given a finish of bronze colored glaze, with darker glaze in the nooks and crannies to emphasize details like hair and eyes. Obviously done by a very talented sculptor, it is unsigned or marked in any way.

This wonderful sculpture stands 10 inches tall and measures 8 inches across the widest part of the woman’s face. The flared base is oval, 5 inches by 4 1/2 inches and the piece is in excellent condition–no cracks or breaks, no marring of the glaze. This is a work of art you’ll be proud to own and display.More Details

PYH – 4256
Description

This dramatic Deco pair of wandmaskes {wall masks} comes from the workshops of the German company Achatit Werkstätten, which was founded in 1948 by Hans Schirmer and the sculptor Peter Ludwig, who designed these fantastic wall masks. They trademarked a new material, one made by boiling fine powdered stone with sawdust and a binding agent, which was then poured into a mold. After they cooled, the sculptures were painted and/or gilded, then polished with agate stones. The word agate is “achat” in German, which is how both the material and the company got their names. The process produced a non-ceramic material that is often mistaken for ceramic.

Both of these wall sculptures are 10 inches tall and project about 3 1/2 inches out from the wall. The lady on the left in photograph #1 measures 6 inches at its widest, while the one on the right is 7 1/2 inches at its widest. The right hand one has two gold foil labels on the back; one label has the company name and a drawing of a sculptured head, while the other label reads HANDARBEIT {handwork/handmade}, MADE IN GERMANY HANDIWORK. Both were made in the 1950’s {later ones use the copyright symbol or the word copyright}. Although they are marked ‘made in Germany,’ they were actually made in West Germany, in the city of Cologne {Köln in German}, which was located in West Germany during the decades that Germany was divided.

These beautiful wall masks are in fantastic condition, with no chips, cracks or discernible wear to the paint or finish. Perfect for that spot where a painting or print just won’t do. More Details…
