Spring Fresh


Red Wing "Brushware" Bowl with Green Glazed Interior and Mossy Green Stain Over Daisy Bas Relief Exterior (LEO Design)


Need a nice bowl for Spring paper whites?  Or a caddy for keys and wallets near the door?  Or, perhaps, a stylish water bowl for your dog?  This bowl, made in the Thirties by Red Wing (in Red Wing, Minnesota), has plenty of style to match its functionality.  The interior is fully glazed—in a fresh, Spring green—which makes it water-tight.  The exterior, which is decorated with a bas relief ring of daisies, is first brushed with a matte green stain which is then partially wiped-off, thus accenting the high-low effect of the texturing.  Subsequent firing fixes the exterior stain and the interior glaze.  This brushing method inspired the pottery line's name, "Brushware."  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
