Waylande Gregory for Dunhill Fused Glass Ceramic Bowl Signed, 1940s Ashtray

About the Item

Waylande Gregory bowl was made for British luxury goods firm Alfred Dunhill in 1940s. Bowl was made in cream-colored clay with dark olive green and transparent crackled glaze and tinted crackled glass inclusion in the center of the interior of the bowl, and semi-matte striped glaze in shades of dark green on the exterior surfaces. Waylande Gregory (1905-1971), one of the most innovative American ceramists and sculptors of Art Deco era, whose art is well represented in museum and private collections, helped redefine American ceramics with his monumental ceramic sculptures in 1930s. In 1940s he moved to smaller ceramic forms, collaborating and creating pieces for leading retail stores, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Gimp's, Lord and Taylor, Neiman Marcus, and many others. In 1942 Gregory filed a patent for his process of fusing glass to ceramics. The bowl is signed Waylande Gregory Dunhill Pat Pending, which dates it early 1940s.The bowl is in good vintage condition for its age with one small chip on the glaze on outer rim surfaces (please see pictures).
