Description

This rare and unusual copper-covered pot was made by the Charles Walter Clewell in the 1930s. The piece is likely made using a Weller blank and covered in copper. The piece is not treated with any oxidizing agent and the copper has a beautiful aged patina. The base is signed, (but really hard to photograph): "Clewell, 362-3".

Charles Clewell worked with metal for many years before inventing a technique to completely cover clay pots with copper or bronze. He used chemicals to adhere and patina the surface of his pots and often applied his technique to ceramics made by other Ohio art potters. This beautiful pot stands just over 4 1/2" tall and is about 4 1/2" across the widest point. There is a crack, which may be a manufacturing flaw inside the pottery, but it does not show through to the metal surface. The copper has a warm soft color and the piece shows marks, scratches and dirt from age.

I am happy to combine shipping.

Please convo me for an international shipping price.
