Edmund Ronaky For Jaru Of California Mid-century Modern Canoe Footed Bowl:
A whimsical and rare mid-century modern art pottery canoe-shaped Bowl by Edmund Ronaky for Jaru California. Glazed terra-cotta. Probably from the late 1950's or early 60's. Humorous mid-century California modernism from what I would consider to be the same "school" as LaGardo Tackett. This would be an example of an early Jaru Art Pottery piece, handmade and signed by the individual artists before they switched over to an anonymous, factory-produced product with no signatures or artist credit.
Early black Jaru label which has since fallen off (it will be included in the package of course); Signed "RONAKY / CAL".
18" long x 1.5" h.
This piece is in very good condition, but there is one repair on the right-hand (short end) tip and a craze line in the glaze on on the left side.
