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.
I think of this bown as being masculine in gender. It has a visceral and rugged feel to the carving. I want to attribute it to Weston because Weston liked to cast ware thick so that he could carve into it but Weston's designs usually took a more uniform and integrated approach. This bowl is literally filled with unexpected turns of events, as if it has three or four separate personas in one. Every turn of the bowl delivers a new face. It could be the work of Gerda Andersen, whom I am awaiting an answer to this mystery. The bowl is simply decorated with coral accentuating the carving and glazed in white. Three and a half inches tall. Five and a half inches at widest diameter.
