POTTER: Mobach -- Of Holland
DIMENSIONS: 3.5 x 2.25" diameter; 2.5 x 1.75" diameter
CONDITION: Perfect
SIGNED: Yes

A pair of vintage Mobach stoneware vases in fine condition. These mini vases exemplify the hand-thrown appeal that's made Mobach one of Europe's prime production studio companies.

Acquired by Mikhail Zakin's during Jaan Mobach's stay in NJ; as guest potter at TASOC.

From the Mikhail Zakin collection.

ABOUT Mikhail: Best known for her salt-glaze pottery and sculpture, Mikhail Zakin, along with Karen Karnes were the first women to build their own salt-glaze kiln in the USA (Stony Point, NY), and during a time when one a few existed amongst potters. True, teaching institutions did have salt kilns, but it was Karnes/Zakin, along with Byron Temple and Don Reitz who started the movement which took hold in the 1970s and 1980s across America. Jack Troy, Kenneth Ferguson, Donald Pilcher and Betty Woodman were also influential, as well as some other well known potters.

Zakin is the founder of NJ's Old Church Art School & Cultural Center which hosts Karnes' nationally recognized (36 year-long) curatorial annual exhibit and sale.

MOST RECENT EXHIBITION: Zakin's work was chosen for the Penland School of Crafts exhibit: Many Paths -- A Legacy of Karen Karnes (March 22 to May 8, 2011)
