Baldwin is one of the pioneering modernists of British ceramics emerging in the late 1950's with other organic abstractionists such as Ruth Duckworth and Dan Arbeid. He has had a strong influence on younger generations of British ceramists including Martin Smith. This sculptural vessel is classic within Baldwin's oeuvre. The basis of works to come can be seen in this early and exceptional piece.
