Inger & Erich Triller Signed Swedish Tobo Midcentury Scandanavian Vase Sweden

About the Item

A beautiful and wonderfully glazed vase by Swedish master ceramicist/designers Erich and Ingrid Triller who were husband-and-wife ceramists specializing in stoneware. The couple was trained in Germany and established a studio (Tobo) in Sweden, which they operated for thirty-seven years. This gorgeous work features a Classic shape and striking glaze that radiates and changes colors (browns, greens, with a tinge of yellows) in the light. Signed on the base with their customary "Triller Tobo" signature. Erich and Ingrid Triller's work was heavily influenced by the Bauhaus ceramics. They were also much influenced by the forms and glazes of ancient Chinese ceramics. The couple is among Sweden's leading ceramic artists of the 20th century. Their work can be found in various collections and museums including the Swedish National Museum of Art and Design. This piece would be a great addition to any Scandinavian or Mid-Century Modern ceramic/pottery collection or an eye-catching stand-alone accent piece in about any setting. Dimensions: 4.75" High, 2.5" Diameter.

  • Beatrice Wood Signed Midcentury California Studio Pottery Luster Glaze Vase
    By Beatrice Wood
    Located in Studio City, CA
    A wonderful gem of a piece by famed American/California ceramicist Beatrice Wood featuring her highly coveted, gorgeously radiant turquoise luster glaze. A beautiful design with a delicate long neck rising from a circular base. Classic and timeless. Signed by Beatrice in her customary "Beato" on the underside of the base (with noted inventory number). Would be an amazing addition to any Mid-Century Modern pottery collection or personal collectors of her work or a fabulous stand-alone accent piece in about any setting. One of the best Beatrice Wood's luster glaze vases we have come across in quite a while. Know famously in the art world as "The Mama of Dada", Wood lived a long (1893-1998) and very fruitful, creative life and is considered by many experts and collectors alike to have been a centerpiece in the modern ceramic art movement of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. At one point in her career, Wood studied with master potters Otto and Gertrud Natzler and later become famed in her own right for her distinct luster-glazing techniques. In 1994, the Smithsonian Institution named Wood an "Esteemed American Artist". Her other awards include: 1994 Governor’s Awards for the Arts (California) 1993 Recognition as A Role Model by Women in Film 1992 Gold Medal for Highest Achievement in Craftsmanship, American Craft Council 1988 Distinguished Service Award, Arizona State University 1987 Fellow of American Craft Council Women’s Art Caucus, National Award (NCECA Award) 1986 Women’s Building Award 1984 Living Treasure of California 1983 Symposium Award of the Institute for Ceramic History 1961 Goodwill Ambassador from USA...

  • Glen Lukens Signed Early Midcentury Glazed California Pottery Weed Pot Vase
    By Glen Lukens
    Located in Studio City, CA
    A very rare early work featuring a dark chocolate brown glaze by master Mid-Century Modern ceramist/potter Glen Lukens whose work has become quite collectible and relatively scarce and difficult to find. The work is signed and dated (1924) by Lukens on the underside (we have only seen one other piece dated this early and that piece is in the Forrest Merrill Collection). Lukens was the founder of the University of Southern California (USC) Architectural School’s Ceramics Department where he helped establish and promote clay pottery as a universally acceptable art form. The current popularity of Studio Pottery and ceramics is widely accepted to have started with Lukens who is oft credited with being one of the first artists to raise the stature of Mid-Century Modern Studio Pottery within the art world. Lukens is famed for his experiments with various glazes and glazing techniques. His influence and glazes can be clearly seen in the works of Otto and Gertrud Natzler, Beatrice Wood, James Lovera, etc. He was also known for combining bright, colorful textile glazes (using natural, organic materials and elements he found in the Mojave Desert, Palm Springs, and Death Valley to make what he referred to as "California Colors") with the rough and raw clay surfaces of his often rudimentary forms and vessels. Lukens currently has an award in his name (Glen Lukens Award) at the University of Southern California's School of fine Arts. A very rare, unique, and truly special work This piece would be a tremendous stand-out addition to any collectors of Lukens' work or Mid-Century Modern ceramics collection or eye-catching accent piece in about any setting, modern or otherwise. A must-have. Lukens work can be found in various museum collections including: Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe, Arizona Huntington Library...
