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.
Brenda Andersen designed many of Andersen Design's production patterns and in the process there were times when she veneered into pure creativity producing uniquely and spontaneous one of a kind objects of art.The liberty to let the craftsmanship and discipline of repetitive patterning interact with the inspired imagination of the creative artisan became part of the Andersen Design production process confounding conventional concepts of production.This Portrait of a lady with flowers cascading through her hair and down her form was likely created by Brenda in the late fifties or early sixties. The figure has a dreamy wistful look as she stands in a field with nature abounding. One wonders what is on her mind. Brenda's faces are always expressive. This one is no exception.
The platter is decorated in the greens and brown decorating colors created by Weston. The speckles in the white glaze suggest it is a early work from the early fifties. There is a small chip on the rim as shown. It is signed on the back in Brenda's hand painted signature.
The platter is 1 inch in height, 7.5 inches in diameter, and 16 inches long.
