Art Pottery & Art Glass
Vintage mid century art pottery hand thrown pot signed by American Appalachian potter Brian VanNorstand.
This wonderful art pottery hand thrown pot with an smooth interior glaze by American Appalachian potter Brian VanNorstand is in very nice condition.
Brian lives and works in a remote area of West Virginia where he throws his pots at the wheel and fires them in wood-burning kilns that he has built himself. Firing is a labor-intensive and closely-tended process of at least 14 hours. Brian's vessels, platters, and vases show the interaction of hardwood and softwood fire on his subtle glazes and unglazed, incised pieces. His forms beckon one to hold and touch.
This lovely vintage pot is clearly incised on the bottom "B. VanNorstrand." and measures 6 inches in height x 8 inches in width and has an opening diameter of 5 inches.
