Rudolf Staffel, Light Gatherer, 1987, porcelain, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of KPMG Peat Marwick, 1993.54.15
Rudolf Staffel created his porcelain works by pinching, scouring, and folding the clay. He manipulated the thickness of each vessel's walls so that the light creates different patterns and shapes as it filters through. Staffel began his "Light Gatherers" series in the mid-1950s.
