Sewer Pipe Folk Art Pottery Plaque of a Woman
Sewer Pipe Folk Art Pottery Plaque of a Woman. Red clay, salt glazed and embellished by hand. The border was formed by pressing a thumb into the clay. all the way around. This piece was made "commercially" in that a mold was used, but there is no way to determine how many were made. This piece was enhanced by the application of a pebble on the neck to represent necklace bauble. A similar example, sans pebble, is illustrated in Sewer Pipe Folk Art by Jack Adamson. There is a small, impressed logo of a seated potter under the woman's chin, but it is very hard to see. 9" x 13"
