This Rose Cabat 'Feelie' vase stands 5.5" high by 4.25" in diameter, a rather large example as Cabat 'Feelies' go. Rose Cabat was an American ceramicist born in 1914, in the Bronx. She lived much of her life in Tuscon, and at 100 years old, had a fabulous retrospective exhibit at the Tucson Museum of Art. She lived a full life and left a wonderful legacy when she died in January 2015. Rose began making her 'Feelie' pots in the 1960s and is considered one of the most influential ceramic artists of the Mid-Century Modernist movement. This Cabat vessel has a bulbous pear-shaped form, with a nipple rim, a signature design of Rose Cabat's pots. Best of all, it is glazed in a handsome orange-rust mix of glazes, finished in a semi-matte sheen, with random spots of a brighter sheen in the orange glaze, as can be seen in the photos. The glazes appear layered, with a suspended glaze effect, with particles of glaze color floating on the surface of the pot, simply fabulous! Rose Cabat's pots are called 'Feelies', and there is a reason for that. They are irresistible, and beg to be touched. The glazes are so smooth, and the design so captivating, you simply cannot resist picking them up! This vase is well marked 'CABAT' on the base. It is in excellent condition, with the usual glaze nuances and characteristics, and a very good restoration to a chip on the rim, which is deliberately uneven, all signature Cabat traits. If you collect Cabat's work, this is a gorgeous large Feelie!
