Synopsis: Book by Reiss, Ray
From the Publisher: Red Wing Art Pottery (Including Pottery Made for RumRill): Classic American Pottery from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s is a 240-page volume depicting the dynamic design trends embraced by the Minnesota-based pottery during those decades. As the most comprehensive and beautifully designed collector's guide available on the subject, this fine book finally gives Red Wing Art Pottery the attention it deserves. Combing six Midwestern states for several years to find original source materials, the book's author and photographer Ray Reiss interviewed the original designers and many of the workers. Now for the first time, more than 1200 beautiful photographs (over 800 in color!) showcase the enormous range of styles and exquisite glazes produced during a four decade period. For example, it illustrates the classic Art Deco and neo-classical styling of the 1930s, the eclecticism of the 1940s, the atomic and figurative styles of the 1950s, and the abstraction and modern geometry of the 1960s. Although many antique dealers and collectors have been unaware of the range of quality pieces that were made during these years, examples of this fine ware are included in the collections of the Newark Museum and the New Orleans Museum of Art, among other prestigious institutions. Red Wing Art Pottery (Including Pottery Made for RumRill): Classic American Pottery from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s also contains a seperate price guide, tips on care and cleaning, and reprints from original Red Wing catalogues.
