Reddy for Christmas - part I

Hoy Hey West German Modernist Vase with Heavy Cherry Red Glazing (LEO Design)

Christmas is right around the corner! It's my favorite time of the year for bold red accessories. Over the next few days, I'll be sharing some of my favorite pieces of red ceramic art pottery.

The West German Modernist piece above was made by Hoy Hey.  It's a heavy jug, fashioned in a dark grey clay, and dressed in a thick, cherry red glaze. It makes a perfect Christmas accent, seated upon your mantelpiece, windowsill or bookshelf. Click on the photo above to learn more about this handsome piece of art pottery.
