Santa Barbara Ceramic Design, or SBCD as it is known, was an art pottery company started in 1976, and located in Santa Barbara, California. Many fine artists worked there and produced hand-thrown, hand-painted art pottery pieces until the mid-eighties when more mass production techniques came into use at the pottery. The works from the early period are highly sought after by collectors and continue to increase in value.
The artist-signed, decorated pieces by SBCD have been favorably compared to similar work by the Rookwood and Weller potteries of the early 20th century. PLEASE NOTE :
The low opening offer, with , is not meant to reflect upon the actual monetary value of the piece. My sales are structured this way to encourage offerding and to allow the final sale price to be determined by the buyers. ~ please click on image for high definition photos ~
