  • Product description

    SOLD A large sculpted owl from Columbus, Ohio potter, Chester Nicodemus. This large eyed owl is glazed with a high gloss light grey glaze over the red clay that peeks through along the feather details. The eyes and beak also feature a black and yellow glaze for detailing.

    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.
