Clewell copper clad pottery 8 ovoid vase arts & crafts verdigris patina weller
Here is a very nice Clewell copper-clad pottery ovoid form vase. Charles Walter Clewell developed a "secret" method for sheathing pottery vases with copper at his Canton Ohio studio beginning in 1906. By the 1920's he developed a technique to stabilize patinas, copper red and matte blue green verdigris. Often the blanks are identifiable from various Ohio potteries, Weller, Owens, Ferrock, etc. This vase measures 8 inches tall and 4 7/8 inches in diameter at the widest. There are multiple cracks to the copper cladding, probably from the manufacture and scattered patina loss, but no cracks to the pottery and no repairs or firing flaws. Marked on the bottom with a hand incised Clewell, A60-6.
A good piece with great patina by a lesser known arts & crafts period craftsman.
