"Phoenix," Brilliantly Glazed Art Deco Lamp Base by Gregory


Brilliantly glazed in tones of crimson, silver and white, this very fine lamp base was created by Waylande Gregory, the renowned WPA sculptor and innovative ceramicist. Prodigious and indefatigable, Gregory produced a wide range of sculptures and wares in ceramic beginning in his college days, through his years working with Lorado Taft and later when he created large multi-figure pieces for WPA projects, institutions and public parks. A major retrospective of Gregory's work is now on exhibit at the University of Richmond's Museums.
