Beatrice Wood Ojai CA Signed BEATO Volcanic Glazed Crimped Studio Pottery Bowl
We are offering a mid 20th century Beatrice Wood crimped studio pottery bowl, in a rich chocolate and cream frothy volcanic drip glaze, signed BEATO / N and BWTF to underside of foot. A wonderful example of her work, the classic handcrafted form complimented with a beautiful and striking finish. Beatrice Wood (March 3, 1893 – March 12, 1998) was an American artist and studio potter involved in the Avant Garde movement in the United States; she founded The Blind Man magazine in New York City with French artist Marcel Duchamp and writer Henri-Pierre Roché in 1916. She had earlier studied art and theater in Paris, and was working in New York as an actress. She later worked at sculpture and pottery. Wood was characterized as the "Mama of Dada." Stands 4 1/2" at the tallest; measures 7 3/4" x 4 5/8" and rests on a 1 7/8" diameter foot. In mint, pristine condition. No chips, cracks or repairs. Crisp & clean! There are a couple of glaze pops in the making, typical in the firing of this type of glaze - barely worth mentioning but for accuracy's sake.
