A cool oblong serving bowl by Peter Pots pottery. The serving boat is in their Seagull Blue; a deep cool blue shading to lighter blue and soft gray. The oblong piece measures approximately 13.5" long x 2.5" tall. The piece was handcrafted in a wonderful mid century design and signed "Peter Pots". Because each piece is handmade, there is a slight variation between pieces. In very good vintage condition; I like how light the pottery is, perfect for passing around the table.
Peter Pots Pottery was started by Oliver Greene at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1948. The pottery has been in continuous daily operation ever since. Since 1954 they have been located in the historic Glen Rock Mill in West Kingston, RI.
Oliver and Elizabeth Greene have garnered many awards for their ceramic designs, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Good Design Show, the Syracuse Museum's Ceramic National and Wichita Museum shows. Their work is part of the permanent collection at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art.
