    Very rare ferro-stone Shih Tzu dog is hand-signed by artist Chester Nicodemus. Circa 1950, this piece features an unusual glaze treatment where a chalky white lightly washes over the rusty-red clay.


    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.
