About this title


Beatrice Wood turned to ceramics late in life at age 40, but still managed to work behind a potter's wheel for nearly 65 years. Influenced by the Dada movement, her lusterware pottery, with its rich and decadent palette of shimmering gold and silver, vindian greens, incandescent pinks, and intense purples, has captivated generations of collectors. Gilded Vessel is not so much a biography as a celebration of the life and ceramic artistry of Beatrice Wood. Glorious color pictures reveal the iridescent beauty of her pottery, while black-and-white photographs document the life, loves and luster, of a woman New York Times Magazine hailed as one of the great lives of the 20th century.

About the Author:

Garth Clark a historian and patron of the arts, has written more than 20 books. His 18-year friendship with Beatrice Wood began in 1980, when he interviewed her for his American Potters: Twelve Modern Masters. His Los Angeles gallery hosted dozens of exhibitions of Wood's ceramic art between 1981 and her death, at 105, in 1998.
