Joel Edwards Studio Art Pottery Bowl Midcentury Modern Voulkos Scheier Natzler. Museum quality stoneware pottery with incised abstract design by Joel Edwards.A significant but under-recognized California ceramicist, Joel Edwards produced powerfully expressive pottery combining Ancient patterns with Modernist 1950's Freeform Shapes. Inspired simultaneously by the gestural force of such Abstract Expressionist painters as Franz Kline and Willem de Kooning and the energetic brushwork of the Japanese Sumi Ink painters, Edwards created bold ceramics which meld Asian and Western styles and philosophies.
Joel Edwards was in the first group of students that studied with Peter Voulkos. In 1954 Voulkos received an invitation from Millard Sheets to head the Ceramics Department at Otis Art Institute. Joel Edwards was the 2nd student to study directly under Peter Voulkos.
In September of 1954 Paul Soldner became Voulkos's first student, followed by Joel Edwards who joined the studio in October of the same year and later came John Mason, Billy Al Bengston, Mike Frimkiss, Kenneth Price, Jerry Rothman, Henry Takemoto, and other notable California Potters. For the 1955 Otis Student Exhibition Millard Sheets singled out Joel Edwards work as the Best Pottery in the entire class. Amazing considering the class of potters.Measures 8.5in diameter x 5.5in height. Thank you for your business!
