Vase (USA)

This is a Vase. It was designed by Jacques Sicard and manufactured by Weller Pottery. We acquired it in 1984. Its medium is molded, glazed, and lustered earthenware. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

The popularity of Tiffany’s iridescent glass and ceramics prompted potter Samuel Weller to hire Jacques Sicard, a pupil of the French ceramicist Clément Massier, to develop iridescent wares for his Ohio-based firm in 1902. Sicard and his assistant Henri Gellie, also from France, worked in secrecy to develop their glaze formula for the successful ceramics line called Sicardo.

This object was donated by Marcia Goodman and William Goodman.
