Circa: 1958-1960
Manufacturer: Annemarie Davidson, Sierra Madre, California

Annemarie Davidson learned her enameling craft first from the great Doris Hall (1907-2001) in Cambridge, MA in 1957. In California she continued her studies with Curtis Tann. Her combination of geometric and organic form in her designs culminated in her most celebrated abstract designs, her Jewel line which features pieces of glass used to create free-form organic shapes which she calls Jewels. She also uses a sgraffito technique, incising straight lines from the center of her plate with the sharp point of a dart.

This 7 51/2 inch wide round low dish or bowl, most likely from 1958-1960 time, is unusual for the technique used on this piece. The center red jewels have blue lines laid over them, which is not the same technique that she used later on her more well known Jewels series.

This plate features a central grouping of three deep red jewels surrounded by three sets of three smaller yellow jewels. On her very early pieces, one sees concentric lines around the center of the piece. I have to believe these were intentional as there is a line leading all the way to the edge of the piece. This circular maze type pattern is seen on other very early piece. This would be considered a Grooveline pattern as well though the grooves are hard to see as the overglaze fills them in.

This plate is very similar to the one shown on the cover of the tri-fold brochure for the May 2 - August 15, 2004 exhibit titled The Enamels of Annemarie Davidson. The exhibit was composed of 33 examples of the artist's work and are all in the permanent collection of the Long Beach Museum of Art, 20 of these works were donated directly by Davidson to the museum.

The back of the plate is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiails in a very early hand-drawn version which features a later rectalinear D. As well, there is the standard later gold paper with the black line. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. Excellent condition overall. There is one small spot of the front rim where the enamel has come off, but it is very small and does not detract from the piece. However with that minor damage, I am offering the piece for about what I paid for it.

The work of Annemarie Davidson was included in the seminal exhibit titled Painting with Fire which opened in Jan 2007 at the Long Beach Museum of Art. She was one of 30 enamelists included with a one page entry on her life and work. Her page is page 266 of the catalogue.
