He was an early member of the Society of Arts & Crafts, Boston and studied. With Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and John Henry Twachtman and communicated with Charles Binns. He attended the Arts Students League in NY, and the Pennsylvania Institute of Art. Among his other accomplishments, he designed tiles for Grueby and created the fountain in Center Harbor NH.
This heavy vase measures 11 1/4 inches high and 7 1/2 inches in diameter at the widest point, and weighs about 7 1/2 pounds. An exceptionally well fired example, it has professional restoration to a large chip at the rim and an in the making stain to the glaze that was distracting. An excellent example of a rare Arts & Crafts New England art pottery.
