Jean Goodwin Ames Night Fragment Scripps College Decorative Charger Plate



Hand painted decorative crackle glaze charger plate entitled Night Fragment, created by Jean Goodwin Ames of California. Plate measures 12" in diameter and is signed Jean Ames, "Night Fragment", Paudua Hills, California on reverse. In very good vintage condition. Taken from the Marks Project Site with thanks: Jean Goodwin Ames was a mosaic mural artist who worked with various media including tapestries and ceramic tiles. Together with her husband, Arthur Ames, Jean completed several murals composed of glazed tile, glass mosaic and enamel. The Ames met in an evening ceramics class taught by Glen Lukens. They married in 1940 and collaborated on a number of Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) projects, commissions for Sheets Studio and other corporate and private commissions. For over thirty years, Jean taught at the Claremont Graduate School and Scripps College.
