About

A unique and rare piece by influential Mid-Century Modern ceramist Glen Lukens whose work has become very collectible and relatively scarce and difficult to find. Lukens was the founder of the University of Southern California Architectural School’s Ceramics Department where he helped establish and promote clay pottery as a universally acceptable art form. The current popularity of Studio Pottery and ceramics is widely accepted to have started with Lukens who is oft credited with being one of the first to raise the stature of Mid-Century Modern Studio Pottery within the art world. Lukens is famed for his experiments with various glazes and glazing techniques. Today he is known primarily for his combining of bright, colorful glazes to rough and raw surfaces of his vessels. Lukens currently has an award in his name (Glen Lukens Award) at the University of Southern California's School of Fine Arts. This piece would be a tremendous, stand out addition to any Mid-Century Modern ceramics collection. Lukens work can be found in various museum collections including: Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe, Arizona Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, San Marino, California Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Los Angeles, California Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York Museum of Art and Archaeology, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri Museum of Arts and Design, New York, New York Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, Oregon San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego, California Dimensions: 3.5" high, 8" diameter.
