|Offered is a fabulous art pottery vessel by American studio potter Polia Pillin from the 1950s. Polia Pillin perfected the technique of painting on wet clay with colored clays. After decorating each pot, the pot was fired then covered with transparent glaze and re-fired. The end result was art on a piece of pottery with a luminous, glass like finish that is unmistakably recognizable. This vessel measures 10 inches in height and 7 inches in diameter is signed by the artist and is in excellent condition. About the Artist Painter, ceramist.
