Offered is a porcelain ovoid vase with a tall narrow neck by Brother Thomas Bezanson. This beautiful vase is in a pale green iridescent pearl glaze. It is in excellent condition without damage or restoration and measures 6" x 8" diameter and is signed as shown. Brother Thomas Bezanson (August 5, 1929 – August 16, 2007) was a Canadian born artist primarily known for his porcelain pottery and mastery of complex glazes who was strongly influenced by Asian pottery, often adapting traditional Chinese and Japanese methods and materials to his work. In 1959 he entered the Benedictine Monastery, Weston Priory, in Weston, VT. Brother Thomas is renowned for his original glaze recipes and perfect forms and always sought to create something new and beautiful. His exacting standards made for the shattering of over 80% of each firing. One "rescued" piece, however, is now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
