Bell-form Vase With Black And White Decoration, ca. 1922
Michael Powolny’s ceramics exhibit patterns typical of those found in Wiener Werkstätte wallcoverings and textiles of the same date, but contrast with the lack of decoration seen in his glass bowl nearby. This vase was exhibited and acquired by the Newark Museum in 1923, but generally Powolny’s work was not known in the United States until later.
