Barbara Willis Early Ceramic Vase

465.00

Barbara Willis early ceramic vase with yellow crackle glaze on sought-after architectural ceramic form-this a flaring rectangular box.  Artist signed in clay on base.
Excellent example of Willis earlier signature style with Glen Lukens inspired thick lava like crackle glaze iced over striated mat earthenware.  This example likely dates from the forties.
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.
