Massive Joel Edwards Studio Vessel


Enormous 21.75" three-necked vessel with applique relief assemblage on four sides, by important Southern California ceramicist.. Beautiful mottled earth-tone glaze. Over 40 hand etched appliques, with no repeating design. The main vessel "sits" on a raised based that is part of the total design. Quite extraordinary and important work by Edwards. Joel Edwards was Peter Voulkos' student at Otis College of Art & Design in 1954. Although not as well known as some of his contemporaries, Edward's works are included in numerous museum collections including the Brooklyn Museum, MAD, and Pasadena Art Museum. Incised "Edwards" to underside.
