Art on Sunday: Autumn Dogwood

Jane Larson (born 1922)
Autumn Dogwood, 1977
Sang de boeuf glaze and reduction-fired stoneware with impressed iron stain
Larson, Autumn Dogwood
Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington

It's a beautiful autumn day here in northern Virginia. Too bad I'm too tired to appreciate it. This has been an exceptionally busy week.

Incidentally, this pot was not glazed with ox blood. Sang de boeuf is a deep red glaze created by the innovative English pottery studio Ruskin Pottery.
