Even though there isn’t a lot of information available about Nancy Bishop, it’s easy to surmise that nature was very important to her, since much of her art reflected themes of nature. This 7 ½” tall vase is one of many that were created in the tree motif. The vase has a dark pink background on which she brushed and sponged the trees in a dark charcoal. This middle portion of the vase has a glossy glaze on it in contrast to the almost matte finish of the mouth and lower portion of the piece. The vase is signed on the bottom. Bishop retired from making pottery in 2012, after working within the Berryville, VA, pottery community; prior to that she spent 22 years at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town Alexandria, VA. According to the information card that came with the vase, this piece was crafted while Bishop was working out of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, dating this piece between 1962-1984, This lovely vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or nicks.
