Beatrice Wood, ‘Beatrice Wood Chalice with Blue Lustre’, Jeffrey Spahn Gallery

Beatrice Wood, a.k.a. Beato, is one of the most fascinating figures in contemporary ceramics. Often called the mama of dada, she was a master of luster glazes. Inspired by ancient glass, Persian ceramics and Indian jewelry, she made modern ware with historical significance. This is one of the best examples we have seen.

Private collection.
