Barbara Willis Cylinder Vase with Early White Crackle Glaze

635.00

Barbara Willis early white crackle glaze cylinder vase.
Unique and rare example of raw striated earthenware exterior wrapping up and around similarly striated lip where normally interior crackle glaze would drip out over lip and onto topmost portion of exterior.
The resulting vase is particularly minimal and stark when compared with the more common examples.  
This example, perhaps a prototype that never went into production or simply a unique studio piece likely dates from the late forties or early fifties.
A student of Laura Andreson, Barbara Willis, not unlike Edith Heath, belongs to the select pantheon of women working in clay during the Postwar years who offered a clear artistic vision and demonstrated the business savvy required to build a market for their distinctive work.
