Vase, circa 1925

Summary

Detroit’s Pewabic Pottery was founded by artist Mary Chase Perry in 1903 as part of the American Arts and Crafts Movement. The pottery is known for the iridescent glazes on its tiles and vessels. This vase was carefully modeled to represent naturalistic oak leaves in high relief. The green matte glaze is typical of Pewabic and Arts and Crafts pottery in general.
