Large Mid-Century Hand-Glazed Studio Pottery Bowl by Peter Voulkos 1952
In 1951, Peter Voulkos and Rudy Autio became the Archie Bray Foundation's first resident artists. Located in Helena, Montana, the Archie Bray Foundation's role in America becoming the dominant force in ceramics worldwide during the second half of the 20th century can not be overstated. And if the Bray (as its known in more intimate ceramic circles) was the incubator of such transgressive creations, Voulkos was arguably its first true star child.
This wonderful piece of studio art pottery was executed in 1952 during Voulkos' time at the Bray. It was acquired when new by Oregon artist William Givler and remained in his collection until his estate was liquidated in 2007. It was purchased by the current owner at that time and it has been in her private collection ever since. We are assisting her with the sale. It is 12.75" wide and 4" tall. It is signed and is in PERFECT condition. NO CHIPS OR REPAIRS.
