ARTWORK SAGA 8:

THREE CERAMICS BY BACERRA
Washington, D.C.
1967-9

My friends, Ken and Bill, started a ceramics store called "The American Hand" in Georgetown, D.C. I , in fact, designed the store. What fun!

Ralph Bacerra was one of the stars of American ceramics! He hailed from Los Angeles. I was lucky to acquire three pieces by him.

A beautiful, 19" large bowl. This is remarkable due to its incised portions and beautiful coloring. This my most valuable piece. Exacerbated by the fact that he's no longer with us.

A 8" covered pot.

Another covered pot 12".
