Mid-Century Modern Karen Karnes Covered Casserole Dish. [Karen] was a towering figure of the postwar studio pottery movement, pioneering salt-glazing in the 1960s and wood-firing in the 1980s. Her work opened undreamed of possibilities of expression for the handmade pot. For the many potters who knew her, she was a mentor whose work embodied the creative power and singular voice to which we all aspire - her life in complete harmony with her creative vision.
Karnes worked with some colleagues to develop and popularize a flameproof clay body. With this clay, Karnes began making stove-top casserole dishes like this one (it can still be used in the oven as well). The piece is marked with her standard KK marking on the side of the bottom. 16 from handle to handle. EXCELLENT USED CONDITION WITH MINIMAL WEAR.
There are two "kiln kisses" on the top of the lid where it touched another piece in the kiln, thereby leaving two remnants of clay. PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS AND ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE PURCHASING!
