Arequipa Pottery, Fairfax, CA 1911-1918
This small pottery started as therapy for tuberculosis patients in a sanitarium and had employed such skilled ceramists as Frederick H. Rhead and Louis M. Solon. Many pieces were hand thrown and had outstanding glazes. This low bowl is a terrific example of their fine workmanship. The vertical pattern, resembling leaves, continues up the sides and over the top edge, which folds inward. This is a beautiful hand-made piece with matte glazing.
