Saucer

  • Marguerite Wildenhain, Saucer, ca. 1971, glazed stoneware, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Alexander L. and Frances J. Pickens, 1991.161.5.2

Execution Date

“It is not enough for a spout to pour; it must pour in the right amount, not like a watering can . . . that floods the cup and carpet . . . The spout, moreover, should start at some special part of the belly---usually rather low for a teapot, since you do not want the tea leaves that float on the top of the water to clog . . . the spout . . .” Artist quoted in “Marguerite: A Retrospective Exhibition,” 1980-1981
