Ruscha Ceramic Pot with Mottled Mossy Green and Metallic Brown Glazes (LEO Design)

Here's another wonderful glaze, made by Ruscha's glaze master, Otto Gerharz.  Unlike some of the "lunar glazes" shared in the past few days, this glaze is more verdant—like a gassy, oxygen-rich planet. One would suspect that life does exist on this organic planet. The mossy bluish-green overglaze hovers over a slightly metallic brown undercoat.  It was made in the 1960's or 1970's and you can find out more about it by clicking on the photo above.

More Space Age ceramics tomorrow.
