Russel Wright Pitcher in Coral
Vintage 'Steubenville' Russel Wright Pitcher in Coral. Circa 1950, part of the American Modern line. 11" Tall.
Russel Wright was one of the most important pioneers in American design, revolutionizing how people live and interact with their domestic environment. A creator of visually innovative items such a furniture, and most notably table-wear, these were also tools to achieve his concept of ‘easier living’, a unique American lifestyle that was gracious yet modern and informal. His wife, Mary, was also an integral part of this movement.
Wright is most popular for this colourful American Modern line, the most widely sold American ceramic dinnerwear in history, made between 1939 and 1959 by Steubenville Pottery in Steubenville, Ohio.
"I love the Wright's approach of reducing the fussiness of domestic life & products while creating interest and creative potential through colour. These items are part of my personal Russel Wright collection, and were used as direct colour references for clothing made during 2014."
