Joanna Price - American MidCentury Studio Potter

Post by MirnaMinkoff on January 7th 2013, 2:57 am

I recently found and bought two pieces of pottery from Joanna Price. She was a mid-century studio potter who I believe worked out of the state of Ohio for at least part of her career. From the scant info I have turned up I know she worked from at least the early 1950's until 1970. All the examples I have found have been stoneware. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find out a lot of information about Price or her work, but she is mentioned in the exhaustive lists of potters that some of the big antique art galleries post about artists they both sell and buy. While sometimes these lists include more info about the artists listed, that has not been the case with Price. I shouldn't complain too much because at least I have found some information and examples of her work, which is more than I can say for some signed pieces I have. But it seems she is a recognized studio potter and given what I have been able to dig up online I'm sure there is more information on her out there, it just hasn't surfaced online yet.

So, I'm posting a photo of the two pieces I own, along with the signature on the bottom of one.




I'm particularly smitten with the small vase on the right, that has a great pattern of abstract circles. I would love to find a larger piece with this pattern.

Here is photo of the signature on the bottom of the blue vessel. The other piece has a simple signature in black paint that read JP in a circle and next to that the OK mark.




Here are some of the links I've found online that feature her work.

From the studio potter's archive blog (Price's piece is in the center)

I'm hoping this posting might bring some info out of the woodwork or someone else who owns some of her pieces may be doing some research and come across this post. I'm very interested to see other examples of her pottery and would love to find out any bio information. I'll be thrilled if anyone on this forum is familiar with the name or work, but won't hold my breath. If nothing else I hope this post spurs some research.

I have several pieces of Joanna Price Studio pottery. I bought 10 pieces at an estate sale. Some are signed by her, some are signed Leonora, one not for sure, and a few unsigned. They are large, and pretty bazarre! Very unusual pieces! I have also been researching her, as I plan to list them on eBay. I'd be glad to send you pictures of them, or share my research, but I probably have found about the same info as you have on her. I believe she was from Dayton, OH, and a piece is signed with that information too.
