Description A Bulbous form porcelain vase of a slight lavender tinted celadon glazed with abstract strokes and splashes of a copper red glaze, made by Brother Thomas Bezanson (1929-2007). With its perfect form, the high glossy surface with fine crackles, and the color palette, the vase suggests its inspiration from the ancient Jun Kiln in China. It was signed on the base: Benedictine Monks, Weston Vermont, ml/140/2, 4/4, 30/15/14/5B.
Provenance Available.
Brother Thomas Bezanson (1929-2007) was a Canadian born artist and Benedictine monk primarily known for his porcelain pottery and mastery of complex glazes. Strongly influenced by Asian pottery, often adapting traditional Chinese and Japanese pottery methods and materials to his work. He is renowned for his original glaze recipes and perfect forms and always sought to create something new and beautiful. His exacting standards made for the shattering of over 80% of each firing. One "rescued" piece, however, is now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. His estate is represented by Pucker Gallery in Boston.
