Me; I'm the one born Mid-Century and I love this work made in the Mid-Century. It has been said that "McIntosh gently nudged the boundaries of traditional studio pottery by elevating functional objects to a rarefied state of art. (LA Times). I simply love them.
McIntosh, was a southern California artist, like Peter Voulkos. Unlike Voulkos, who created massive, abstract sculptures, Harrison found his calling in making functional work. His work is characterized by sensuously simple forms embellished with curvaceous line and shapes. patterns.
"His inspiration came from natural forms, modern design and Asian aesthetics. A typical McIntosh pot is a smooth, symmetrical, gracefully patterned object that looks too close to perfection to have been made by hand but nonetheless retains the touch of the artist." (LA Times)
