This Walt Schmidt stoneware vessel stands 11.5" high by 6" in diameter. This vase has a bottle form, with an Asian-inspired motif, including strap handles and a central medallion with a Kanji symbol. Walt Schmidt is an Indiana artist who has been throwing pots for more than 30 years. He continues to produce work in his studio, Hickory Tree Studios in Bloomington. This vessel is hand thrown, with a subtle ribbing on the body. The glaze is a handsome rich brown color with nice accent glazes. This bottle vase bears Walt Schmidt's cipher, as shown in the photos. It is in mint condition, no apologies. This stoneware vessel makes a very handsome presentation.
This vase is from the Phillip Sartore Collection of Contemporary Art Pottery, which was on exhibit at the Richmond (Indiana) Art Museum in the early 2000s. Philip Sartore was a man who was a student of history and art. He discovered Art Pottery in 1980. Born with Polio, Philip was confined to a wheelchair, but he never let that get in his way. He met each artist whose work he collected because the personal connection was part of his collecting passion. He was working on putting a collection of his contemporary pots together for an exhibit at the Richmond Art Museum in Indiana, when he died unexpectedly at the age of 50. His family eventually worked with the museum to bring the exhibit, 'Down to Earth', to fruition. The opening was highly successful, with most all of the artists in attendance.
