  • Product description

    Circa 1960, this bell ornament by Nicodemus has a yellow glaze with the brown pottery peeking through. The front of the bell says “Noel” for the season, and the back says 1960 to commemorate the year.


    About the Artist:
    Chester Nicodemus (1901-1990)
    was a Columbus, Ohio potter, sculptor, and teacher known for his small clay birds, as well as other wildlife, teapots and pitchers. His pieces are recognizable as being produced with variously colored translucent glazes, which enhanced the redness of the high iron content of Ohio clay to create a russet brown undertone.


    Nicodemus earned a degree from Cleveland Art School and then went on to teach at Dayton Art School and Wittenberg College. In 1932, he became dean  at the Columbus College of Art and Design and later taught at Ohio State University and served as president of the Columbus Art League. All of Nicodemus' molds and glazes were destroyed upon his death at his request.


    This ornament is one of hundreds of pieces of ceramics that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
