  Featured Vee Jackson items (view more)

I still haven’t picked up any Vee Jackson pottery at the thrift yet. I have come across two examples so far, and in both cases the pottery was extremely damaged and chipped. I guess to be honest, they also just aren’t my cup of tea. Both examples were of the gaudy, “applied flower blossom” variety where a piece of finished pottery is augmented with hand crafted (or sometimes not) pottery blooms and then painted. I think they sometimes attach it before firing, and sometimes they attach it afterwards with glue.

Either way, while the flowers are often spectacular they just don’t appeal to me. The Vee Jackson ceramics company produced a wide arrray of these type of giftware items and other decorative pieces. Covered small bowls and ashtrays seem to be an item that is seen a lot. I’ve seen a number of their other items on Ebay that were more appealing - these include footed bowls, some interesting vases that look like Sascha Brastoff or Madeline of California pieces.

I’ve yet to find out if this was the actual name of the designer / potter or not - I tend to think so, because I know there are some items produced by Lou Hoenig and others that are signed as “handpainted by Vee Jackson”. The pottery appears to have started in San Gabriel around 1946 and then moved to Pasadena at some point. They continued to produce items well into the 70s.
