  • Stan Bitters Signed Large Mid-Century Modern Ceramic Pottery Haniwa Sculpture
    By Stan Bitters
    Located in Studio City, CA
    A wonderful, unique, beautifully glazed, quite rare, and special double-faced "Haniwa" pottery sculpture by American California studio pottery master ceramists Stan Bitters whose work was instrumental in shaping the organic modernist movement in the 1960s. Bitters received his Bachelor of Arts degree in painting from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1958. He also studied under Peter Voulkos at Otis College. After graduating, he worked for Hans Sumpf as the company's resident artist. During this time he created architectural murals, tiles, birdhouses, planters, and sculptural objects – designs that would earn him recognition later on as a pioneer of the organic modernist craft movement - many still some of the most iconic designs today. Stan Bitters' work was featured as a part of the prestigious California Design series of exhibitions and annuals that chronicled art and design in California from 1954-1976. His works were also featured as part of a group show entitled Golden State of Craft 1960-1985 at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, CA. This show was part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, an unprecedented collaboration of more than 60 museums and other cultural institutions in Southern California, celebrating the birth of the Los Angeles art scene. Bitters' work was also exhibited at Heath Ceramics' Boiler Room...

  • Dora De Larios Signed Mexican American California Studio Pottery Sculpture
    By Dora De Larios
    Located in Studio City, CA
    A fabulous, rare, and unique large horse and rider sculpture/ candelabra by famed Mexican American California studio art potter Dora De Larios. It was recently brought to our attention by a collector of her work that this piece was featured in a presentation at the Scripps Fine Arts Foundation and it was made in 1959. It is one of her earlier works. Quite rare and special in this respect. De Larios was born in Los Angeles to Mexican immigrant parents. She grew up in the artistic Silver Lake district near downtown Los Angeles amongst Mexican and Nisei Japanese immigrants. As a result, De Larios was heavily influenced by ancient American...
