Lidded Casserole

  • Harriet Bellows, Lidded Casserole, early 1980's, stoneware, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Judy Coady in honor of American Functional Potters, 2000.72.1A-B

Lidded Jar (see 2000.72.2a‑b) and Lidded Casserole were created toward the end of the 1970s, shortly before Harriet Bellows decided to give up ceramics and become a pilot. She created a series of vessels inspired by the artist Giorgio Morandi (18901964), who often painted still lifes of bottles, jugs, and bowls. In Jar and Casserole , Bellows used simple shapes to emphasize the subtle texture of the glaze.
