Weller Sicard Vase
Ohio, circa 1905
7.5" high

Like the iridescent glazes of the French masters and Zsolnay, this one dances as the sunlight shifts throughout the day. These photos were taken in natural light.

Jacques Sicard was a French ceramist that came to America to work for Weller Pottery for about five years. Supposedly, he never let Samuel Weller know the secret of his glaze so when he returned to France the glaze went with him. If you would like to learn more, American potter Paul Katrich has a nice video about Sicard's pottery at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoICuX1vqh8.

    You have the best and most beautiful collection.
    Funny about the Weller, I used to collect it and didn't know this!

    Sweet piece! I've always loved how the flower forms on Sicard rendered pieces look like electrically charged shadow photograms/rayographs (similar to those pioneered/popularized by May Ray).

    Hello Bellin,
    I got a new job in April that is consuming me---in a good way. So I've had to cut back on all the pottery fun. Thanks for thinking of me. I'll be sure to check out your latest goodies one of these days.
