This artful and intriguing two-piece high-temperature glazed ceramic box features a seascape masterfully rendered in subtle glazed shades of blue, gray, purple, orange, black, and off-white. The piece was found in the art community of Mendocino, California and was created during the 1970's "back to the land movement" in that famous artisan community. Mendocino is famous for its dynamic coastline, which has an almost Oriental quality; these unique qualities are reflected in the pieces' modernist International Orange setting sun and asymmetrical composition. This elegant and impeccable 20th century ceramic work displays an extremely high level of craft and design, and is in mint condition with no chips or damage of any kind. It measures 10 3/8" x 5" x 2 ¾" and is signed and dated on the piece's base; the name is illegible, but the "'77" is clearly legible. It has a great vibe and presence, and is impeccable in a mid-century environment.
