Anna Pottery Stoneware Railroad Conductor One gallon Pitcher 1884. Sold and photographed by @crockerfarm. “Incised "Here,s to Paps Heath," and Signed "Anna Pottery / Anna Ill / Aug 1884," wheel-thrown, ovoid pitcher with flared rim and applied strap handle, the front decorated with a hand-modeled figure of a portly gentleman embellished with heavy cobalt highlights. This figural decoration includes outstanding detail, characteristic of the Kirkpatrick brothers' highest-quality folk art creations. These include a three-dimensional robust body, which extends around and melds seamlessly into the wall of the pitcher, a rotund goateed face, bulging eyes, incised hair, buttoned and lapeled coat, striped shirt, a distinctive cap, tucked pocket watch chain, and well-executed shoes with incised heels on underside... Based on the figure's clothing, distinctive cap, and pocket watch, it is very likely that he represents a railroad conductor, and may portray someone personally known to the Kirkpatricks. The inclusion of the pocket watch is a major clue as to the man's occupation, as railroad conductors relied on pocket watches of exceptional quality to keep their trains running on good time. The Kirkpatricks' great familiarity with the Midwestern railroad system, shown in their interest in using incised railroad maps on their famous pig bottles, further corroborates this idea. The slogan at the top, "Here's to Paps Heath", may refer to Marvin M. Heath (1841-1918), a railroad conductor from nearby Pana, Illinois, active in the region for several decades of the late 19th century.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Black-on-black jar with geometric designs. Julian Martinez ( American, 1885 - 1943 ) María Martinez ( American, 1887 - 1980 ) San Ildefonso Pueblo c. 1920. @dallasmuseumart “This black-on-black jar by famed Pueblo artist Maria Martinez combines ancient Indian symbolism and ceramic techniques with a sleek austerity akin to 20th-century American design aesthetics. Martinez began experimenting with blackware following a commission from archaeologists to re-create ancient Indian pottery excavated near San Ildefonso, New Mexico. Working with members of her family, here her husband, Julian, Martinez spent seventy years practicing early firing processes and perfecting hew own iconic polished designs set within a matte band and a polished background. This impressive blackware jar has a wide lip that slopes outward through the neck and shoulder of the vessel. From the prominent shoulder, the jar tapers elegantly back to rest on a narrow base. Only the upper zones of the vessel bear decoration, utilizing the black-on-black painting technique developed by Julian Martinez between 1919 and 1921. The burnished black surface, which provides an impressive sheen to the vessel, is visually contrasted by textured surfaces resulting from applied slip paints. The contrasting textures form bold geometric or abstract patterns around the wide prominent neck of the jar, capturing and reflecting light in complementary opposition. The designs feature broad diamonds, zigzags, and swirls. Two parallel bands—one formed by a solid painted surface and the other by evenly-spaced squares—encircle the shoulder of the vessel, framing the painted surface. This necklace jar with its fluid contour was a common form made by Maria throughout her career. Over her lifetime, Martinez's exemplary craftsmanship became an emblem for Pueblo artistry and cultural heritage.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Bottle (Refredador),first half 16th century Spanish, Valencia. @metmuseum “This bottle, possibly a version of the hanging leather pilgrim flask used during journeys, would have been used to cool wine in a larger container of water and, although few have survived, was presumably quite a commonly seen form at one time. The arms within a shield on the side are those of Enrique of Aragon-Segorbe, lord of Paterna, or of his son Alfonso, who succeeded him as lord of Paterna in 1516.” #pottery #luster #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Jug @vamuseum Cologne Germany ca. 1525-1550 Salt-glazed stoneware with moulded detail, and pewter lid. “This unusual salt-glazed stoneware jug is an elaborate version of the mass-produced Bartmann bottle, so-called because of its applied bearded facemask. Here, though, the whole vessel is moulded in great detail to convey a three-quarter length figure of a man dressed in costume fashionable in the mid-sixteenth century. The pewter lid, openable by flicking the thumbpiece attached to the handle, doubles as the man's hat. Such a jug would have been used to hold beer or wine at the table upon which might also be found other vessels such as those the man is depicted as holding - a rather more conventional Cologne stoneware jug and a facetted green glass drinking flute. Despite a long earthenware potting tradition from the time of the Roman occupation, the Cologne stoneware industry began rather later than that of other Rhineland towns. By about 1500, however, Cologne was producing small mugs and jugs with applied moulded botanical decoration. Although there were several thriving stoneware workshops in Cologne in the first half of the century, the city authorities were concerned about the fumes and fire risk. Prohibitions and tax increases forced many potters to leave the city to set up instead in nearby Frechen. The jug was formerly in the Weckherlin Collection, objects from which formed the core of the South Kensington (now V&A) Museum's German stoneware collection on their acquisition in 1868. The Weckherlin Collection was acquired by a fellow Belgian, the art dealer, publisher and patron of the Pre-Raphaelite painters, Jean Joseph Ernest Theodore Gambart who came to London in 1840 and took British citizenship in 1846. He displayed the collection in his London house "Rosenstead", Avenue Road, near Regent's Park, until a gas explosion caused him to reconsider the long-term security of his remaining pots - he sold 62 objects to the Museum for £800.” #pottery #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Scaramouche figure, anonymous Delft, c. 1725 - c. 1740 h 29.0cm. I think Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody lyrics relate to this Scaramouche character. Anyone know? 🤔 “I see a little silhouetto of a man Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango Thunderbolt and lightning very very frightening me Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, figaro, magnifico” “Scaramouche is a stock character in the commedia dell’arte. This form of comic theatre from Italy was highly popular throughout Europe during the 18th century. Commedia dell’arte figurines were produced on a large scale in the Meissen porcelain factory in Saxony. Delft factories adopted this fashion.” #ceramics #ceramicart #historyofceramics #keramik #陶器 #陶瓷 #도기류 #도예 #keramikk #ceramica #seramik #seramic #poterie #instapottery

Flowerpot and stand, 1824 James Pottery @metmuseum. “An exceptional example of sgraffito hollowware, this flowerpot was made for Tacy Lewis of Newtown, Pennsylvania. She would have been thirty-one years old in 1824, and the presentation piece was presumably made in honor of a birth or wedding. The elaborate ruffled border on both the pot and the stand is characteristic of the Chester County region. 9 7/8 in. “ #pottery #handmade #art #clay #ceramic #redclaylove #sgraffito #historyofceramics #wheelthrown #terracotta #earthenware #ceramica #artist #ceramicart #ceramicartist #potter #instapottery #decoration
