. . . And a Sublime Summery Sky

Beswick English Art Deco "Fat Penguin" Pitcher with Sponged Aqua and Cornflower Glazes (LEO Design)

We're sharing selections from our collection of art pottery, now in-stock at LEO Design, which reminds us of the Summer: the sea, the sky.  This English Art Deco piece, made by Beswick in the Thirties, is a delicious combination of aqua glaze, topped with sponged-on cornflower "tendrils."  The bright, optimistic coloration can only mean Summer.  And the form—reminiscent of a fat penguin—adds to the piece's happy mien.  It's large enough to make a statement on its own.  It would also look wonderful anchoring a collection of aqueous ceramic vessels.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
