This studio art pottery vase was created in 1980 by Lennox Hubbard (Len) Lindsay III (1943-Present) in North Carolina. This was the same year he had a solo show at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Works of his are in the public collections of the People's Museum of Peking, China; the Southern Highland Craft Guild in Asheville, NC and the North Carolina Museum of Art, among many others.
Len Lindsay is known for his crystalline glazes that have expert texture and depth. Made of pale beige clay, his bottle form vase has extensive blue crystals on a brown field. The artist's iconic incised signature is on the bottom, with his monogram of the conjoined letters LHL, the Roman numeral III and the underlined date 80.
This elegant piece of pottery is in very good condition, with one tiny flake at the rim of the base, shown in our photo and indicated with an arrow. It stands 7 1/4 inches tall, measures 1 1/2 inches across the round mouth on a 1 inch high neck. The circumference around the shoulder is 16 1/2 inches, the round base is 3 1/2 inches in diameter (a narrow ring of green felt has been applied to the rim) and it weighs 1 3/4 pounds. It's a wonderful find for the lover of exceptional, one of a kind art pottery
P.S. We darkened the photo of the bottom of the vase so the marks are more visible.
