I posted this along w/ some other mystery items a while back, but want to separate it out from the other stuff so hopefully i can get some feedback on it. It's a beautiful, larger-than-life pottery sculpture. the inside is very colorful and bright, but it's been glazed over the outer surface w/ this white glaze. it's really beautifully done. unfortunately i haven't found a signature on it. i think it might be by someone from the school of Peter Voulkos who was/is a very famous pottery sculptor here in oakland in the 60/70s. the piece is very large and heavy, but beautifully made.
