Llama by Barney Reid


Barney Reid was a highly original and versatile artist/designer and early member of post-war San Diego's important Allied Craftsmen group. Reid's studio produced a fantastic variety of work, from textiles silkscreened with wildly surrealistic patterns, to neo-Baroque etchings, to sensitively handmade ceramics such as this exquisite figure of a llama. Whatever the medium, Reid's eye and hand were impeccable guides to the essence of post-war California modernism. The way the locks of the llama's hair are suggested by repeated thumb impressions, the dollop of cake-frosting white atop the otherwise unglazed bisque, and the perfectly modeled neck and head are all clues to Reid's mastery of the material. Signed "BMR 1948".
