Studio Ceramic Bowl by Brother Thomas Bezanson

$ 3,800
  • Description
    A ceramic round bowl with a flat foot ring studio crafted by Brother Thomas Bezanson (1929-2007) circa 1970-80s. Covered in a brilliant free form red glaze on white background, the bowl has the root of its archetype in Chinese ceramic and the glaze displays a brilliant gradient hue that calls to mind the famed "Langyao Red" from Qing dynasty. Chinese connoisseurs even conjected names for different shade of red, for the shade like this one, they might call it Red of the Beauty's Rouge. The base rim is incised "Benedictine Monks, Weston, Vermont" and with BT's cipher, also inked "30/3/11/3".
    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.
    See a piece with a similar glaze pattern, see illustration 36 in "The porcelain of Brother Thomas The path to the Beautiful" by Godine/Pucker Safrai.
