Peter Voulkos Large Heavy Chawan Teabowl

About

A fantastic, free form, heavy chawan teabowl by American master potter Peter Voulkos. Very unique and scarce work with rare use of color. One of our personal favorites.

He won the Rodin Museum Prize at the first Paris Biennale in 1959 and was the winner of a Guggenheim fellowship in 1984. Voulkos received the College Art Association’s Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in 1997. He was made an honorary member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters in 2001.
