Saxon Ceramics was a small studio pottery workshop in Framingham, Mass. which was active producing modernist ceramics during the 1950's-1960's. Saxon was headed by Paula Crikos and produced, during it brief existence, original and low-production modernist ceramics. This bowl was made by Crikos, and it is an original one-of-a-kind piece, and not from an edition. Measuring a massive 22" x 9" x 3" it was created to be displayed as a wall-object. This fine and rare example of American studio pottery is noteworthy for its sophisticated glazing; the rich blue glaze contrasts with the mat-brown earthy-toned under glaze.vThe shape is modernist in its angularity and lines. The piece has been highly fired, and has the feeling of porcelain (the piece "rings" when it is tapped). It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The work was displayed at Paula Crikos's home, and purchased from the estate of the artist.
