An assortment of large ceramic vessels including some recent additions to the Atrelier Vierkant collection, large jars from Kate Johnson, monolithic sculpture vessels from the Nigerian/English artist Lawson Oyekan and bright colorful floor planters from the South African ceramic studio, Obbilgato. Also some classic Mid Century ceramic statements from Peter Voulkos, Fabio Leonardi, Gourju Naumovitch and Edwin and Mary Scheier and some pieces from antiquity.
Huge ceramic pots always evoke the ancient pottery traditions of decorating Mediterranean courtyards and doorways, or for utilitarian purposes necessitating large sizes for grain storage, wine vessels and storage of oils and liquids.  They were also a popular feature for 19th century Victorian hallways, fireplaces and gardens. Matching pottery pieces of large dimensions are always effective for creating a sense of symmetry and balance and for highlighting architectural features and entrances. Large pots provide a grounded reassurance and their curvaceous forms are usually very complimentary when used for botanical displays.
