Max Lawrence dies at 98

At Franciscan Pottery we are sorry to hear of the passing on 25 July 2010 of Max Lawrence, co-founder (with wife, Rita) of Architectural Pottery in Los Angeles in 1950.

"The hallmarks of Architectural Pottery were graceful, geometrically shaped vessels, devoid of ornamentation and often large in scale. Radical for their time, their pure forms — cylinders, cones, bullets, gourds and totems — startled the eye in 1950s America, where fat-lipped terra-cotta pots had been the standard for generations."
