Description
This tall, lovely pair of blanc de chine (literally china white in French) figurines portray a Chinese peasant couple, their bodies bent and their faces etched with age. The statues are of hollow construction which is one characteristic of true blanc de chine; they are thickly potted and feel heavy despite being hollow. Another trait is the unglazed base; the cracks in them are caused during the firing due to the thickness of the walls and are a sign of age, not a defect. The clay used is very fine and silky to the touch on the interior.

Description
This spectacular large dish was hand made and slip decorated by Lester Breininger (1935-2011) of Robesonia, Pennsylvania, regarded as one of the premier folk potters of the last half of the 20th century. He was originally a teacher by profession and a mostly self-taught potter who loved history and the traditions of the Pennsylvania German settlers. For 45 years, he used time-honored, traditional techniques to make his redware; Breininger Pottery closed in August 2011 and Lester died that December.
