Going Back To Cali

We are excited to discover a new artist to add to our repertoire. Signed Rushall 1973, further research finds this late artist's first name is Dayle and that he lived in the San Diego area where he was a ceramicist and art conservator. This large vessel stands 14" tall. We love the modern primitive look. If you look closely, you'll see a bird that morphs into a smiling women in relief (see top photo). It is ornately carved all around and it's earthy glaze just screams Southern Califoria circa early 70's.

  1. I was thinking about Dayle Rushall the other day, as my late mother owned several of his pieces purchased in the 1970s in Del Mar. We often saw him (a handsome man!) at outdoor art shows and at the Earth Song bookstore, and always loved looking at his unique, beautiful pieces. I loved his pieces with animals; my mother had a wonderful dolphin vase, white with a lovely glaze. I was sorry to read that he had passed away, but am happy to see that his wonderful work is remembered today.
