Circa: 1960-1965
Manufacturer: David Gil, Cooperative Design, Bennington Potters Vermont

Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from master potter David Gil at Bennington Potters in Bennington, Vermont. It dates around the year 1960 but before 1962 as it carries both a shape number and the words Bennington Potters and Cooperative Design. It is a later version of this design as the side of the piece is also glazed. The earlier versions of this piece had the side unglazed and trimmed in a orange tint.

It is the same shape as pieces I own which carry the original Raymor line label. This 6 1/2 inch diameter piece features a wild black outlined abstract bird with purple, pumpkin and yellow dots on its body with a teal eye.

I recently learned that when Gil decided to mark his works with shape numbers, he started with the number 1300. However, if an earlier design was to remain in production, they marked it with a number starting with 1200. This explains the numbering and mark on the transition pieces, particularly this one marked with shape number #1240.

They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters.

After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.

In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced.

David Gil started producing work in Bennington Vermont in 1948. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters, then into the Bennington Potters company we have known since 1960 and still very much active today.
