Lot 25: Harlan House pottery Teapot together with Catalogue

Item Overview

Description

Large teapot with rattan handle. 1972. Catalogue from the exhibit "20/20 A Harlan House Retrospective 1969 - 1989" held at The Koffler Gallery, Toronto, November 15, 1990 - January 2, 1991 by Gloria Hickey. Vancouver-born Harlan House began his career as a potter during his studies at the Alberta College of Art, where he graduated with a Diploma in Fine Art in 1969. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, his functional pottery was technically proficient and market-driven. Finding it did not excite his creative energies, House investigated alternative historical approaches to pottery, which eventually led him to discover the beautiful objects created by Chinese potters of the tenth through thirteenth centuries. Since that time, Harlan House has gone on to become one of Canada's outstanding potters, with a particular specialization in porcelain. His international reputation has extended to exhibitions in Europe, Japan, the Republic of China, South Korea, Taiwan, and the United States. House has also exhibited in galleries, museums and other venues across Canada, including the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, Toronto; and the Glenbow Museum, Calgary. House's work is in numerous public and private collections, including the Royal Scottish Museum, Britain; the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Hull; the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; the Montreal Museum of Fine Art; the Claridge Collection, Montreal; the Winnipeg Art Gallery; and the Government of Alberta Collection, Edmonton. House has also created commissioned works for commercial and government organizations in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. His popularity as a lecturer and teacher have taken him across Canada to many art schools and universities, including the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Halifax; the School of Visual Arts, Montreal; the Sheridan College School of Craft and Design, Toronto; the University of Alberta, Edmonton; and Lester B. Pearson College, Victoria. Harlan House has also been recognized by the ceramics community with numerous awards, including the 1986 Joan Chalmers Award for Excellence and the 1987 John Mather Award from the Ontario Arts Council. In 1995 Harlan House became a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.
