This is a bowl. It was made by Edwin Scheier and Mary Scheier. It is dated ca. 1955–59 and we acquired it in 1992. Its medium is thrown, painted, and glazed stoneware. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Edwin and Mary Scheier, a husband and wife ceramicist team, collaborated on their work, bonding Edwin’s more sculptural style with Mary’s wheel-thrown works. This bowl, produced while the couple was teaching at the University of New Hampshire, exemplifies this combination, as it has been skillfully and thinly thrown, yet retains a sculptural element in its conical shape.
