Small Mission basket, a beautiful compact example with minor damage to rim~from LBC this month. In house relatives here + here + here.
Paul Soldner, wax resist (manganese glaze?) tea bowl, late 50's early 60's, found last weekend at the Los Angeles Pottery Show. I'm always attracted to more traditional/conservative wheel based forms by more sculptural potters... for example. Last year's show here...(scroll down)
PS-post 1000-I need a new hobby!
Tags from PCC/Rose Bowl items this month~aka Ben unleashes the archives~aka don't reach your hand in when 7 Japanese guys are in the middle of a Khaki scramble~aka all our favorite clothes have been taken over by young republicans and marketing clowns so we have gone back to The Wonder Years for fashion pointers.
*last shot, Takahiro's square neck find.
Finds from Superbowl AM PCC. Los Angeles Athletic Club sweatshirt, 1960's (Don Draper does his laps there)/Navajo pillow top, aniline dye?, leather back/Weird ol farm stool, held together by wooden knob structure/Navajo saddle blanket, 1950's, all natural colored-carded wool, great condition.
Loot from outta town flea-late 1950's Navajo pillow top with poly back, still with original tag from Teec Nos Pas Trading Post, kinda krazy colors in this Yei Bi Chei but the scale and irregular graphic elements are neat....in house relative here. Basket with dyed weave-not sure of origins/age to this piece, the seller is from seattle and sources his items there...keying into the house textiles however.
