A beautiful studio stoneware bowl by New York potter Rose Wasserstrom (1922-2015).

William Ehrich is credited as one of her ceramic teachers, when she studied at the Rochester Memorial Art Gallery. She is best known for her stoneware, which is wheel thrown and slab built.

The crackle glass is somewhat similar to pieces from Robert Maxwell or Victoria Littlejohn. Believed to be from the 50s-60s, but could be later. Incised on bottom with "Wasserstrom".
