Flicker, Kevin - stoneware, good condition

This stoneware pitcher by Kevin Flicker is 7" tall x 7" in diameter is wheel thrown. Flicker is a fourth generation Minnesotan who was born in St. Cloud and grew up in Rochester. In the spring of 1974 he graduated from the University of Minnesota, Morris, with degrees in Psychology and English. Later that fall he became enamored with clay after he enrolled in a university night course and witnessed his first ceramics teacher throw on the potter’s wheel. Over the next ten years he developed a personal clay aesthetic via numerous ceramics courses and workshops from a variety of teachers. His most influential training was a rigorous apprenticeship served with Master Potter Richard Bresnahan at St. John’s University in 1985. He then taught ceramics courses at UMM from 1987 until his retirement in 2017. As a teacher he was committed to a standard of excellence that led many of his students to continue their studies after UMM in graduate, apprenticeship, or residency programs. While Kevin has exhibited his work throughout the Midwest and beyond, he is primarily interested in producing affordable, high quality functional pots for the local population, using as many locally gathered natural materials as possible. In 2001 he was awarded a Distinguished Teaching Award from the University of Minnesota’s College of Continuing Education. In the summer of 2003, along with a group of current and former UMM students, he built UMM’s first woodfired kiln capable of firing stoneware and porcelain. The kiln was built almost exclusively with donated or recycled materials, and to date has been fired 18 times. Kevin lives in Morris with his wife Judy in a Craftsman-style timber framed home that he built himself using numerous recycled materials. He continues to create hand-built vessels in a small basement workshop.

Sandzén joined a group of young artists and they rented a studio at Anders Zorn's suggestion. They received instruction from Zorn as well as Richard Bergh, a well-known portrait painter and Per Hasselberg, one of Sweden's best sculptors. Sandzén then went to Paris to study with Aman Jean, where he began to associate with American students in the French studies. On returning home in 1894, a family friend sent Sandzén a booklet about Bethany College, Lindsborg and the town called "Little Sweden."

Raymer, Lester - painted tin box, good condition

It's in good condition and signed by Raymer on the bottom, this piece measures 8.5" x 8.5" x 12". Winning bids are packaged and shipped by UPS. Shipping estimates are available upon request. Lester Raymer, born in 1907, grew up on a farm just southwest of Alva, Oklahoma. Raymer worked with a variety of art forms beginning in his early grade school years and continuing throughout his artistic career. He received his bachelor's degree in art from the Art Institute of Chicago. From 1936 to 1945 Raymer lived on his family farm again and continued to develop his artwork. Raymer met Ramona Weddle, his future wife, at the Art Institute. Ramona was born in 1909 at the Brunswick Hotel in Lindsborg, Kansas. She attended the Art Institute of Chicago during the same time period as Raymer. After her graduation in 1936, Ramona came back to Lindsborg and taught in the Art Department of Bethany College. In 1945, Lester and Ramona married and decided to create a home in Lindsborg. Although Ramona assisted Raymer with the pottery during their first years of marriage, she produced very little art of her own. Her focus was to be supportive of Raymer's work. Raymer's art was influenced by a number of factors. The circus came to Alva often during Raymer's childhood. He worked for a poultry business where he did drawings and paintings in his spare time. The "Bible" was a source of imagery beginning in his childhood. Raymer's painting professor at the Chicago Art Institute was Boris Aslov from Russia, and his art history professor was Helen Gardner, author of "Art Through the Ages", long-time used as a textbook of American art. Raymer talked often of the great influence his trips to Mexico had on his artwork and of his desire to remodel his studio in the style of a Mexican home. Raymer won major awards and international recognition with his religious art work and liturgical commissions. He taught one year at Bethany College in the art department and then made his living from the sale of his artwork. He utilized a variety of materials to produce a diverse body of artwork. Lamps, candleholders, furniture, and many of the sculptures in the studio were made for the studio use, not to sell. His paintings were most significant to him. Raymer was a studio artist in Lindsborg, Kansas until his death in 1991.Read more

Jacoulet, Paul - colored woodblock print, good

An original colored woodblock print by Paul Jacoulet (b. 1896-1960), titled "Chagrin d'Amour Kusaie est Carolines", circa 1940, measures 6" x 4" and is in good condition. Some of the image appears to be under the mat. Paul Jacoulet is best known for his striking portraits of the natives of Asia and the South Seas. He designed over 160 woodblock* prints and oversaw their production in his workshop. Following in the collaborative tradition of ukiyo-e* printmaking, Jacoulet recruited talented carvers and printers who could duplicate the delicate lines of his drawings and watercolors. The exquisite quality of Jacoulet's prints was due in great part to his exacting standards, and his use of costly materials like mica, crushed pearl and powdered metals. Around 1931, Jacoulet began to work with Shizuya Fujikake learning the craft of woodblock printmaking. In 1933, he established the Jacoulet Institute of Prints, and by the next year, he began publishing his own designs. With the exception of Jacoulet's 1934 Rainbow Series published by the Kato Institute, all of his prints were self-published. Jacoulet remained in Japan through World War II and continued to produce prints up until the time of his death in 1960. Although many of his prints were sold by subscription, he also sold a number of prints to American military officers stationed in Japan.Read more
