Red Wing Pottery Minnesota Nokomis Console Bowl *arts And Crafts Form, Glaze* For Sale
RED WING ART POTTERY MINNESOTA LARGE NOKOMIS CONSOLE BOWL ARTS & CRAFTS
Red Wing Pottery in Minnesota's long history included their finest art wares early on, and these were marked with a blue, circular "Red Wing Art Pottery" ink stamp on the bottom. This included their most famous, distinctive & remarkable forms and glazes in the Nokomis line. Here is a great example, marked as such on the bottom.
It's a weighty, commanding piece ... and beautiful. Stand about 3.75" tall and measures about 9" diameter outside dimensions, handle to handle. Heck, the bowl weighs nearly 3 lbs.! If you're looking at this piece, then you know the form and you know the glaze, distinctively Nokomis, so I won't go into description about its beauty. This piece has no damage or repairs, and it shows no sign of usage, really. In the 4th front view, you can note a very small firing line on the lip, to the right. It's about 1/8" & is from the kiln firing. Minor, but need to point it out. Otherwise, I can't pick this to death with anything else.
It's a wonderful piece in the true Arts & Crafts Movement, organic & fluid in both form and glaze, with expert execution all around. This is Red Wing at its singular, distinctive best among potteries of the time, making its own statement, 1910's to 20's, I think. Whether or not you just collect Red Wing, Nokomis is a line for all art pottery lovers.

I've added two pics. One's a close-up top view of where that firing line on the underside lip comes over the top lip edge. It's tough to photograph. In any case, the line does come over the top, and, in looking closely with magnifying glasses, I see that it continues, tightly, forming a half-circle before ending about 1 3/8" away, also on the lip. This is exactly the area where there is excessive glaze on the outside lip underneath (second added pic), & I think this excess glaze is what caused this. The separation & line look & feel glazed over, they are exactly echoed by the heavier glaze accumulation underneath, and so I think they are factory & not damage. In any case, I apologize. Obviously I didn't pick this quite to death, & I'm sorry. To those of you who have offer, I understand if you cancel your offers. I've had this for years and never noticed, but I should have now. Sorry.

In regard to the fourth picture, I've been asked about the light area just left of center on the bowl's shoulder. This is a thin & light glaze area, in contrast to other areas of the piece that heavily glazed. The appearance of this area is exaggerated by the camera flash, but still, there it is. At its center, this becomes a glaze skip of about 1/4" x 1/4". It's factory original. Thank you for your patience on this piece. I certainly could have done better at the outset here.
