"I don't decorate, I accumulate!"
And along the way, I've accumulated three different pieces of West Coast Pottery. I don't recall where, when, or why.
I've always thought that in a home with a mid-century modern vibe, they would stand alone as sculpture.
The West Coast Pottery was developed by Lee and Bonnie Wollard in the 1940s in Burbank, California.
Even though I'm attracted to these pieces, my home is definitely not mid-century modern; so they are used for their intended purpose -- to hold flowers.
This basket with its fluid, organic design really calls for Spring tulips.
The vases are clearly marked on the bottom, and I see them at antique/vintage venues and on e-bay regularly.
So far, I've resisted the urge to add to my collection.
I'll just enjoy the three I have accumulated.
I love the way this particular piece looks with my Mother's Franciscan Desert Rose dishes from the same era.
