Large Ceramic Vase by Brother Thomas Bezanson
The minimalist modern form might be distilled from the classic Chinese garlic bottle. The high glossy surface displays a splendid shades of dark purple, copper red, auberge and blue, in a copper flambé pattern called “peacock” glaze that was clearly inspired by ancient Jun Kiln in China. The subtle shift of colors and patterns is truly gorgeous to behold and some part resembles the peacock plumage. At 17 inch in height, the vase is one of the most impressive pieces by the artist and the meticulous form and glaze also put it in the best category of the artist’s repertoire. The vase was signed on the base with the potter’s decipher as shown. Strongly influenced by Asian pottery, often adapting traditional Chinese and Japanese pottery methods and materials to his work. He is renowned for his original glaze recipes and perfect forms and always sought to create something new and beautiful. His exacting standards made for the shattering of over 80% of each firing. One “rescued” piece however is now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. His estate is represented by Pucker Gallery in Boston. See two examples with the “peacock” glaze, see illustration 7 and 41 in “The porcelain of Brother Thomas The path to the Beautiful” by Godine/Pucker Safrai.
