Bowl, 1930-1950

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 exhibits the iridescent surfaces for which Pewabic was renowned. The blue-glazed interior contrasts with the gold on the exterior, heightening this effect.
