Ballard pottery #21 3' footed planter wild glaze! It is signed 21 and has the incised S.Ballard Vermont mark. Great glaze on this footed pedestal piece, almost a Rockingham glaze. Has the original Ballard paper label as well.  Excellent condition  David Gil Coop Design 6 1/8 inch round x 13/16 inch  deep plate with rough unglazed bottom, signed with incised signature 'David Gil' and 'bennington'.  This mark dates pre-1960. There is little speckling in the glaze on the front of the plate. The sides of the plate are glazed as is the rim of the plate but the mark is from the middle period of the 1240 plate series, so I am putting this into the late middle period closer to 1960. 


The pattern on this plate is a very abstract one, depicting a Bull or Steer with horns. I have nicknamed this piece Lascaux Bull as it reminds me of the cave paintings there. The body is done in a simple line technique of blue and black. The eye is turquoise blue and there are two brown spots on the side of the animal. 


There are no hints of turquoise color in the  brown dots as seen on the early version of this design.  Excellent condition.


On the back of this plate, the incised signature is not as clear as on the early period plates. It looks like a white glaze was brushed over the bottom as one can see brush marks. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced.


David Gil started producing work in Bennington Vermont in 1948. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters, then into the Bennington Potters company we have known since 1960 and still very much active today.  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there while these influential teachers were part of the faculty: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. Katherine Nelson.
