Mid-Century Ceramic Bowl by Mary Grote


This beautiful ceramic bowl in classic 1960s aqua and earth tones was created by Mary Grote. We know little about Mary Grote as an artist, but - interesting especially because of their name similarities - this piece seems to have been created in the style of Maija Grotell, widely considered the “mother of American ceramics”, who was invited by Eliel Saarinen to become head of the ceramics department at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the epicenter of the early 20th century modernist movement.
