– Making Pottery Art: The Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection of French Ceramics (1880–1910) presents the public debut of the recently acquired Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection of European Art Pottery which is comprised of works produced during a period when French potters created technically experimental and aesthetically ambitious vases that revolutionized and expanded the boundaries of the ceramic medium. Works of imposing size in stunning shapes finished in dazzling glazes by the master ceramists of the period including Jean Carriès, Ernest Chaplet, Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat, Albert-Louis Dammouse, Auguste Delaherche, Paul Gauguin, Hector Guimard and Georges Hoentschel are displayed with other works that served as inspirations ranging from Asian ceramics to German stoneware. Among the outstanding works on view are Carriès’s, “Flask with Face,” (1890), Chaplet’s, “Monumental Vase,” (1890) Dalpayrat’s, “Bowl with Two Panthers,” (1895), Danmouse’s “Pair of Vases,” (1882), Delaherche’s “Vase with Peacock Feathers,” (1889), Guimard’s, “Vase des Binelles,” (1903), Gauguin’s, “Vase with Women and Goats,” (1889) and Hoentschel’s, “Basket Vase,” (1900).
