This interesting green art pottery covered jar or vessel with a reclining figure knop or decoration was done 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 jar has a brown glaze on the interior and is signed on the base. Excellent overall condition, with minimal imperfections and expected wear from age and use. See our other Gerry Williams pieces listed. Dimensions: 8 ¾” h x 10 1/2” diameter. See our other Gerry Williams pieces listed.
