Produced in the technique of pâte de verre, this free form sculpture takes the shape of an egg in an expressionistic style. Made by artist Doug Anderson, whose work has been been featured in the Smithsonian, Anderson takes inspiration from the conception of life for his glass egg sculpture works. The black lining frames the soft hazy pinks providing a contrast that highlights the calculated craftsmanship. Signed on the base.

Owl by Nicodemus Pottery has a matte milky white finish with bits of brick red pottery peeking through. Round yellow eyes, a black beak, and black talons complete this design.
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.
