Harrison McIntosh (1914; USA)
Lot # 50 - Harrison McIntosh (1914; USA)
Lidded Vessel
ca 1995
Stoneware; with lid, ht. 7.5, dia. 7.5 in. 
Artist stamp on base.

McIntosh was introduced to ceramics when he enrolled in Glen Lukens’ class at the University of Southern California in 1940. He then studied at the Claremont Graduate School with Richard Petterson from 1949 through 1953, during which time he produced his first wheel thrown stoneware vessels and began to show them in exhibitions. Working with Marguerite Wildehain during the summer of 1953, he gained his first exposure to the Bauhaus aesthetic and incorporated it into his developing style. After his time at Otis, McIntosh settled in Claremont, California, where he built a studio and home that suited his visual sensibilities and his working methods. Since then he has continued to live the life of a studio potter, occasionally punctuating his time in the studio with other projects. Now having completed more than half a century of work in clay, he has developed a well regarded body of work that is held in public and private collections throughout the world and has been the subject of a retrospective exhibition at Pomona, California's American Museum of Ceramic Art.
