For your consideration, an early ceramic bowl by the noted San Francisco Bay Area artist Phyllis Pacin. This fine work is created by the slab method that is the signature style of Pacin's two and three-dimensional ceramic work. Measuring 4" tall and 9" in diameter and in subtle shades of glazed off-whites and light grays and chocolate browns, the work features incised fields of circular organic shapes. The work is also noteworthy for its use of "stitching"; there are several areas to the inside and outer portions of the piece in which the "breaks" in the folded clay have been reinforced by fused stitching. This process-driven aesthetic permeates the work. The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips or damage, and is signed, "Pacin". The work most probably dates from the 1970-1985.
Pacin's artwork hangs in museums and in public, private, and corporate collections worldwide, and this early work by a recognized Bay Area artist is highly collectible.
