Beatrice Wood Teapot With Wonderful Luster Glaze – Famed Ceramist / Dada Artist For Sale
teapot is an excellent example of Beatrice Wood’s ceramic work featuring luster
glazes. This work measures 4 inches high, 8 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches deep. It
is in perfect condition, aside from a small, stabile firing crack toward the
bottom of the lid and an area on the bottom where the glaze most likely dripped
that was ground down. Neither of these impact the beauty of the work.
Wood was an important contemporary artist, craftsperson and writer. Her life
ran the course of the 20th century and included many of the figures that shaped
it. Ultimately, her genius was in the marriage of wide-ranging influences in
her work. The spirit of Dadaism, impact of Modernism, embrace of Eastern
philosophy, influence of folk art and even the ornament of ethnic jewelry were
all combined in her ceramics. Her work reveals a mastery of form, combined with
a preference for the naïveté of folk art. Ultimately, it is impossible to
separate her life experiences from the work she created, as she truly mastered
the art of a life.
work is being offered by the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts in Ojai,
California. The sale will assist in supporting the Center and its activities,
which include exhibitions of contemporary artists, concerts and theatrical
starting the offerding off without reserve, so that it will sell for fair market
value. Have fun offerding!
