Originally formed as the Cleveland Pottery and Tile Company by designer, potter and teacher R. Guy Cowan, the Cowan Pottery Studio, which operated from 1913 to 1931, produced outstanding and technically extraordinary pieces, which brought international recognition to American Art Pottery. The expertise of the talented artists and chemists in residence allowed them to create distinctly modern forms and glazes during its short-lived existence, which have never been reproduced.
The iconic "Logan" vase, so nicknamed after the Frank G. Logan medal awarded to the Cowan Pottery at the 1924 Chicago ceramics exhibition which featured this vase in a collection of Cowan's work, is perhaps Cowan's best known and most influential design, and was frequently imitated by several competing potteries of the day.
This gorgeous pillow vase, shape #649-B designed by R. Guy Cowan and produced circa 1928, is glazed in Cowan's beautiful "Antique Green" glaze, a rutile crystalline matte finish with glossy brown and olive highlights, and features elegant scrolled handles with floral centers.
Condition is superb and unblemished, free of chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration.
Marked at the base with die-impressed Cowan logo.
