Are you a fan of vintage vibes and unique decor? Then you need to know about Robert Maxwell!
Robert Maxwell was a visionary ceramics designer and artist who created some of the most iconic pieces of pottery during the mid-20th century. He was the head designer for Treasure Craft (Pottery Craft USA) during the late 60's, a company known for its innovative and high-quality ceramics.
Remembered for whimsical sculptures & creations such as the "Beasties", Maxwell was also known for using bold overlapping geometric patterns and was heavily influenced by the Bauhaus movement, which shows in his work. This style of modern pottery can be found on a variety of pieces created for Pottery Craft such as vases, wine carafes and sake set, and teacups.
But it's not just his designs that make Maxwell a Mid-Century icon, his use of glazes and techniques was ahead of its time.
He was one of the first to use a technique called "Rutile glaze" which gives his pieces a unique texture and depth and his layering of geometric shapes and earth-tone hues is recognizably his.
