A wonderful example of an abstract polychrome art pottery vase by Indian / American artist Gerry Williams (1926-2014). Williams was born in India from American parents, and eventually set up a studio and became a longtime resident of Dunbarton, New Hampshire. Williams took his first pottery lessons from master ceramic artist Vivika Heino at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen in the late 1940s. He became a juried member of the League in 1952. New Hampshire Governor Jeanne Shaheen named Williams the state’s first artist laureate in 1998. In 1999, the League gave Williams the Lifetime Achievement Award. This abstract vase is signed on the base “Williams, X” . Very good overall condition, with minor imperfections and expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 17” h x 9” w x 4” d.
Featuring period furniture, fine art, quality porcelain, silver and decorative accessories.
