Sheldon Gants for Kroywen Pottery

sheldon gants kroywen pottery

This amazing Kroywen Pottery Mid-Century Modern art pottery piece was designed by Sheldon Gants in 1950.

It was part of a line of different ceramic items created by Gants in this stunning turquoise green glaze for Kroywen Art Ceramic of New York. The ashtray has a free-form biomorphic shape with a very unusual translucent crackle glaze pool in the bottom. We knew we found something special when we saw this from across the room. The pool glaze is something not seen everyday, and the weight and unbelievably rugged design let you know that these pieces were made to be used! Even if you are not a smoker, these Mid-Century Decor art pieces make great change dishes, catch-alls and dresser butlers, or just looks fabulous sitting around! This gorgeous piece had absolutely no chips or cracks when we found it, but the ashtray had obviously been used, and the center pool glaze surface did show some faint signs of wear upon very close inspection. This is typical of many Sheldon Gants pieces for Kroywen. After all, why would someone have bought one of these ashtrays if they did not intend to use it? This normal wear and tear does not affect the overall look, so don't worry if you find a piece that appears to have been used. The original Kroywen label was still attached underneath. Otherwise, we may have never learned what an important piece of Mid-Century Modern art we came across! The piece shown measures 10.75 inches in length at widest point. We sold this Sheldon Gants Kroywen Pottery ashtray, but his work does show up on eBay now and then, so check below to see Kroywen Pottery for sale.
