2017-03-06 - Monday - Mint Museum Tour

Monday Brian Gallagher gave the Delhom Service League a tour of the Delhom Collection's American Ceramics. Brian gave a great tour, as usual; full of interesting information about all the factories, materials, artists, subjects, and circumstances of the creations.

There were many interesting pieces, but my favorite by far were these two "egg" vases. Amazing.

Ott and Brewer, Trenton, New Jersey; Isaac Broome (designer, modeler), American (born in Canada), 1835-1922. Pair of Vases, 1877, Parian porcelain. Museum Purchase: Exchange Funds from the Gift of Harry and Mary Dalton. 2003.97.3.1-2

On the way out I really enjoyed this David Leach "cylinder". I would like to try making a similar top on some of my pots.
