Garden of the Gods Handled Vessel

no.021 2009-12-30

This nice Garden of the Gods vessel has an applied ribbon handle. Eric Hellman probably did the fine wheel work after he returned to the Colorado Springs area after the war. The handle workmanship is OK.

The gorgeous speckled streaky glaze is harder to find than the "cold stripe" swirl finish found on Hellman's other tourist pottery.

Earlier we talked about this swirl and other Hellman work before his enlistment.

Lots more later on Eric Hellman's Broadmoor-Springs and post war pottery.

Please contact us if you have insights on this or other topics. Thank you.
