Original Mid Century Gerry Williams Pottery, Large Stoneware Bowl
Excellent form and color, this signed mid century stoneware large bowl is hand crafted by the late renowned NH potter, Gerry Williams - 1926-2014. The surface of the bowl is a rich glaze of blues and grays. We are selling another similar smaller bowl and lidded bowl in separate listings on Chairish. Pardon the light reflections in the photography. There are no white spots on this piece.
Signed on bottom. In near perfect condition.
Charles Musser's 1976 documentary entitled An American Potter explored his life and work, and he is listed in Who's Who in American Art. Williams was the co-founder of Studio Potter magazine and Phoenix Workshops, and has been a model and source of inspiration for ceramic artists around the world. Williams was selected as New Hampshire's first Artist Laureate by Governor Jeanne Shaheen in 1998, and in 2005 was honored with New Hampshire's Lotte Jacobi Living Treasure Award. Williams once wrote, "Potter is what I do, who I am, where I come from."
