Drawing, Design for a Covered Soup Tureen
This is a Drawing. We acquired it in 1992. Its medium is graphite, blue color pencil on wove paper, laid down. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
This graphite drawing could have been made as a document for designers or as a fabrication drawing against which artisans would have checked the finished mold-made object before firing. The shading articulating the flutes, pinecone, and leaves emphasizes the powerful, spherical form.
