Richard Burkett Vase
Vintage Richard Burkett vase from the 1970s. One of his earliest works, dating from the 1973-1983 period of the Wild Rose Pottery, as evidence by the impressed WR stamp on the lower front of the piece. The glaze colors he used are 1970's avocado green and gold on grainy, heavy beige clay, finished with the salt glaze complete with a few glaze pops. Incised, looping lines surrounding a cascading drip of green decorate both front and back, while incised lines ring both top and bottom. Signed on the bottom.
Dimensions: 8.5" H x 5" diameter at opening; 6" diameter at base
