"Galloping Horse" Art Deco Plaque by Waylande Gregory, 1940s



Glazed in brilliant white, deep red, gold and black, this striking round plaque was made 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 was recently organized by the University of Richmond's Museums.
