Strong Results for Cowan’s Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, 20th c. Art + Design Auction
Cowan’s Auctions, Inc. Modern and Contemporary Ceramics Auction on Nov 7, 2014 saw high prices for good famous artists such as Lucie Rie, Magdalene Odundo, George Nakashima, Akio Takamori and Michael Lucero. Following a ceramics sale was Cowan’s 20th Century Art + Design sale, that highlighted well-developed pieces of mid-century and contemporary design, excellent art, works on paper, photography and art glass.
The top offered lot in a auction was a work patrician “Black Flared Rim Vessel” by Magdalene Odundo, that sole for $30,000. Born in Nairobi, Odundo perceived her early preparation in both India and Kenya before roving to England in 1971 to continue her training. She worked in Nigeria and Kenya to investigate normal hand-built pottery techniques, and eventually found herself in New Mexico watching a creation of blackware vessels.
Pieces by Michael Lucero had a clever display in a auction. A teapot patrician “Smoke in Eye” sold for $8,400, and another pot, patrician “Chameleon on a House,” satisfied $7,800. Both vessels go to Lucero’s array of teapot forms that both preoccupied a figure and combined his splendid glassy palette to emanate something some-more than a teapot.
Other vessels that garnered high prices in a ceramics apportionment of a auction enclosed a square by Lucie Rie, that satisfied $12,300, a vessel by Akio Takamori, titled “Female Bather with Mirror” sold for $9,225, a work by Beatrice Wood patrician “Superb Gold Luster Chalice” sole for $8,400, a work by Alev Ebuzziya Siesbye patrician “Exceptional Untitled Turquoise Form” realized $7,800, and a teapot by Adrian Saxe brought $6,600.
The top offered lot in a 20th Century Art + Design Auction was a George Nakashima Table Lamp, that brought $13,200, nearly tripling a pre-auction guess of $5,000/7,000.
Additional important lots enclosed a Steuben Mosaic Side Table that sole for $7,800, a Dino Martens Oriente Vase satisfied $7,800 a Tiffany Studios Nautilus Desk Lamp sold for $6,600, and a Drypoint by Martin Lewis realized $6,600.
