Beautiful vintage vase by Sasha and Susan Makovkin. The vase is estimated to have been made in the 1960's or 1970's due to the mark on the bottom. In excellent condition with NO chips or cracks. 4.75" tall x 5" diameter. 1952 BA University of British Columbia.1987 MA Theology New College Berkeley, California. 1959 Pond Farm with Marguerite Wildenhain. Sasha Makovkin typically threw pieces which his wife Susan decorated.
His work ranged from functional stoneware forms to sculpture and architectural installations. Makovkin dug the stoneware clay he used for his functional pieces from Mt Tamalpias. Long before it was popular, Makovkin fired his work in a diesel fueled kiln using a mixture of used motor oils.
