Large Iridescent Pewabic Ceramic Centerpiece Bowl



We named it "The Crescent"! This large Pewabic ceramic footed bowl is covered in an amazing iridescent purple glaze splashed and dripped with hints of turquoise, pale green, lapis blue, and from certain angle, a golden sheen. Like most Pewabic piece, it has a simple form with a short base rim, on which the play of the glaze with light takes the center stage. On the façade of the bowl, there is a crescent shape in pale golden color with a silver core. Not certain if it was created intentionally by the artist or occurred purely by chance during the firing process, but it certainly gives the piece a sense of mystery. The base is branded mostly illegibly with the circular mark of Pewabic Detroit, a logo used between 1910-1969. The bowl is likely dated to the second quarter of the 20th century. Pewabic is an art pottery studio established by Mary Chase Perry Stratton in 1903 in Detroit. It was known for Stratton's research and experiment with iridescent glazes. Her work, such as tiles, were widely used by the local architects in edifices across Michigan. The decorative pieces were supported and collected by Charles Lang Freer. With Stratton's death in 1961, all formulas of the glaze were destroyed, therefore although the studio continued to operate to this day, the vintage iridescent pieces were no longer produced in the same caliber.
