Large Nicodemus Pig – Signed

$295.00
Larger size pig by ceramics artist Nicodemus has a charming shape with a rounded silhouette. A speckled creamy grey glaze allows for bits of rust to peek through on the ears and nose. Signed on underside.
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.

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.

About the Artist:
Smoky Brown (1919-2005) was an enigmatic folk artist from Dayton, Ohio who valued art and service to his Columbus community.
