This wonderful shouldered vase stands incredible and stately 24 inches tall. Made by Hyalyn Pottery circa 1960s-1970s. Constructed of white clay with an awesome matte turquoise green speckled or mottled glaze which gives the appearance of patinated copper. Signed on the bottom it is in wonderful condition apart from a small chip on the bottom edge. Part of me feels that the chip was done at the pottery as it has been touched up with the exact color of the glaze. Hyalyn was founded in 1946 by H. Leslie and Frances Moody. While Frances designed most of the pieces her husband, Leslie, created the glazes. Leslie was a graduate of Ohio State University and associated with Abingdon, San Jose Pottery, and Rookwood prior to founding Hyalyn. At one time, Eva Zeisel and Georges Briard designed items for the company. A quote from Western Piedmont Museum of Labor and Industrial History states: Hyalyn played a tremendous role in the evolution of pottery within the Western Piedmont region. It developed a style, technique, and finished product that brought business and modernity of ceramic art to the Hickory area. Hyalyn served as a threshold for the local community, bringing potters and consumers together to create a connection and bond through an ancient craft. You should make this handsome and awesome vase yours.
