Rare Ricky Wisecarver 1984 Indian Jardiniere & Pedestal 16-3/8" Tall
This is a fine example of a rare Ricky Wisecarver Jardiniere & matching Pedestal Base.
Rick Wisecarver was born in 1950 and died in 2002. He got his start with pottery when his mom, Yvonne Hoadley*, who owned a ceramic shop in Roseville, Ohio and suggested to Rick that he paint pottery for her. It was a family affair for Wisecarver, who started working in the field at the relatively young age of 20 (1970). He worked with his family and did not actually do all the painting on his jars. Aunt Flo, as well as Mom, helped with the painting.
Eventually Rick started his own pottery line, becoming world famous with his many one of a kind originals. His pottery has become extremely collectible and vary widely from Plates to Prints.
This beautiful piece was originally found in rural Minnesota some 10 years ago. I have never seen another in all this time.
The matching Set measures 16-3/8" tall and displays an Indian Chief in full warbonnet. Note on the warbonnet that it continues all the way down the matching Pedestal.
The beautiful Set is in very good condition with the Jardiniere being damage free and the top of the base having a hairline, as can be seen, by looking closely, in the last photo. Both the Jardiniere & matching Pedestal Base has been signed and dated by Wisecarver's Pottery Studio and was made some 26 years ago. [see all the photos]
This wonderful rare Set shows well anywhere in the house and will make a wonderful addition for your Ricky Wisecarver collection.
