From the personal collection of the artist.
This work by Turner has exiting and unexpected surfaces, raw and gritty with earthy slips. This brings every touch, line and gouge by this subtle artist into sharp relief. In 1958 he joined the Alfred University faculty, where he remained until his retirement as Professor Emeritus of Ceramic Art in 1979 and was also honored by the establishment of the Robert C. Turner Chair in Ceramic Art.
Provenance: Directly descended in the family of the artist.
