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.
This is an early vintage arctic seal and a wonderful 1960s example of the individualized decorative techniques practiced in production used as an art form. The Arctic Seal was designed by Weston and Brenda Andersen to be slip cast in red stoneware and decorated in variegated tones of black and grey and then dipped in our white glaze. The eyes are ebony outlined in unembellished red stoneware. The seal is 17 inches long, The decoration of this particular seal is executed with vigor and vitality that makes it very expressive and very unique.
Every vintage piece sold on our website is recorded in our airtable database. The V number represents the record on the database.
