The Nicodemus stamp is placed on the bottom of each ceramic figure. Three available in the set, each sold separately, as is. About the Artist: Chester Nicodemus (1901-1990) was a Columbus, Ohio potter, sculptor, and teacher known for his small clay birds, as well as other wildlife, teapots and pitchers. His pieces are recognizable as being produced with variously colored translucent glazes, which enhanced the redness of the high iron content of Ohio clay to create a russet brown undertone. Nicodemus earned a degree from Cleveland Art School and then went on to teach at Dayton Art School and Wittenberg College. In 1932, he became dean at the Columbus College of Art and Design and later taught at Ohio State University and served as president of the Columbus Art League. All of Nicodemus‘ molds and glazes were destroyed upon his death at his request. This ceramic figurine is amongst hundreds of pieces of art that are available at our location in Grandview!
