Crystalline Porcelain Vase
* Vintage Item
Phil Morgan (1948-), retired potter from Seagrove, North Carolina, made all his glazes by hand. This heavy hand thrown porcelain vase is covered in one of his unusual crystalline glazes in a lime green and rust combination. The baluster shape has a high shoulder and a flared, flattened double-layer lip on a short neck. The dry base is hand signed, inscribed "Phil Morgan 01" in the clay.
The vase is 7 inches tall, about 6 inches across the shoulder with a 18 1/2 inch circumference. The mouth opening is 2 1/2 inches wide, with the base diameter 2 1/2 inches. The piece weighs 2 1/2 pounds and is in excellent condition, with no wear and no damage. It's a handsome piece of art pottery from a prominent American potter.
>>> Phil Morgan has several of his works in the Smithsonian Museum. He established Phil Morgan Pottery in 1973 with his wife Julia Smith Morgan (1951-2019), also a talented potter, and he's been written about hundreds of times in magazines and newspapers. The Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina, owns 120 of his pieces. Three of his pieces were featured in the book "North Carolina Pottery" published in 2004 (we've shown the page in one of our photos). Fun fact about Phil Morgan: He's one of North Carolina's most frequent lottery winners, having won over 300 times.
