Dora De Larios Earthenware Cat Sculpture (ON HOLD)
(ON HOLD) An earthenware or pottery sculpture of a stylized cat by Dora De Larios, circa 1960. Incised decoration. Signed on underside. Measures 5.25"D 12"W 10.25"H. Tiny flea-bite chip at edge of one toe, otherwise, excellent original condition.
Dora De Larios:
"In 1977, she was one of 14 potters selected to make 12 place settings of dinnerware for the White House to be used at a luncheon honoring senators’ wives. The dinnerware toured to six U.S. cities in an exhibition entitled, “American Crafts for the White House.”
Her public and private architectural commissions are equally impressive. Most rewarding to the artist was being chosen in 1979 by the City of Los Angeles to create a 6’x26’ cement mural to present as a gift to Nagoya, Japan, L.A.’s sister city."
