The Road Less Travelled
You may be accustomed to finding our traditional line, priced to be affordable to the middle class. We would love to be making it and also to be teaching others how to make our line but, alas, we do not currently have a production and training studio. To raise funds for a studio we are putting our vintage collection of rare, one of a kind and original design prototypes on the market. To learn more, follow our blog, Andersen Studio Evolution Diaries. We love this process and are committed to seeing it continue for the benefit of future makers.
Bufflehead Duck Vintage Craft Design prototype, black white, 8" longThis is a vintage prototype of the Bufflehead Duck, likely crafted by Weston Neil Andersen at the time it was designed. It is exquisitely executed. The White and Ebony glazes, designed by Weston, are perfectly applied with a very thin line of unglazed bisque separating the colors.. The ebony glaze has a subtle bronze shimmer. The tail feathers are skillfully carved into the back of the form. The beak and end tail feathers are brushed with Our original black and gray decorating color before dipped in the white glaze. A Serenely peaceful sculpture of this classic bird.
