Howard Kottler, Would Blue Boy from the Blue Boy Set, 1969, porcelain, silver, and applied decals, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the Howard Kottler Testamentary Trust, 1991.194.4D
Howard Kottler made a pun on the word “would” by covering the plate with a decal of wood grain. His use of these fake wood-grain decals follows his desire not to feel limited by the appearance and nature of the clay (Patricia Failing, Howard Kottler: Face to Face, 1995).
