American studio potter Eugene Deutch (1904-1959) was born in Budapest. Deutch left Hungary in 1923 and moved to France, briefly studying sculpture under Brancusi. Four years later, he moved to Chicago and in 1934 opened his first studio, Ceramic Atelier. He also taught at the Chicago Art Institute and the Lewis Institute, home of Mies (Less is More) Van Der Rohe and counted Frank Lloyd Wright as one of his many patrons. His work is in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Milwaukee Art Museum, and The Smart Museum at the University of Chicago.
He used clay from Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee and New Jersey, creating vessels of simple forms with rich glazes in shades of gunmetal, cream, granite gray and chocolate with contrasting shades of cobalt blue, aqua, gold, turquoise and moss green.
This heart-shaped or triangular-shaped bowl measures 6" by 5 1/2" by 2 1/4" at the highest point. The rich chocolate glaze shows patches of granite gray. Signed on the base "E Deutch 1953". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint and scarce.
