Original Mid Century Gerry Williams Pottery, Stoneware Lidded Bowl
Excellent form, beautiful glaze, this signed mid century pottery, stoneware lidded bowl is hand crafted by the late renowned NH potter, Gerry Williams - 1926-2014. Gray/beige exterior of the bowl. Blue tones and gray on it's lid. We love the lid's handled top. Signed on bottom. In near perfect condition. Some light reflections in the photography. There are no white spots.
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."
