This very organic Mountainside Pottery vase stands 5.25" high by 5" in diameter and 2" at the rim opening. It has a handsome squat form giving rise to a narrow bulb rim. This vase was made in the borough of Mountainside, New Jersey. Mountainside Pottery was established in 1929 by John Kovacs, who was from Hungary. He was affiliated with Rutgers University. The pottery closed around 1940. Some vessels were hand thrown, some molded. This one is glazed in a rich organic striated glaze with blue dominating the body of the pot, and a carmelized brown glaze at the rim, covering the top of the collar. The glaze is finished to a satin mat. This vessel is marked with the cojoined 'MP' on the underside and it is in studio original condition, with the usual glaze nuances of studio pots. This vase makes a great presentation, with its handsome form and its very rich organic glaze!
