Lot No. 0279

Manufacturer: Waylande Gregory

Description: Waylande Gregory figure of a ballerina, circa 1940, painted, unglazed terra cotta with attached glass elements, quite possibly unique. Incised “Gregory” on top of the base. Gregory left many of his terra cotta sculptures unglazed and some were painted (Note Clowns on Unicycles pictured in Folk, “Waylande Gregory Art Deco Ceramics and the Atomic Impulse” on page 114 and 115). The glass attachments are very unusual and relate to his fusion of glass and ceramics. Mounted on a custom, hand crafted wooden base by the artist. From Gregory’s estate. Height 20 inches. Good original condition.

Size: 20

Estimate: $3,500.00 - $4,500.00
