Rose Cabat
American, (1914-2015)
Collection of FIVE "Feelie"
studio pottery vases
Signed to base.

Biography from TheMarksProject.org: Rose Cabat worked in earthenware, stoneware, and beginning in the 1950s porcelain. Although best known for her expressive "feelies", small forms usually between two to eight inches in height with thin neck openings challenging their assumed vessel function. Cabat also created a series of wind-bells in the 1950s and other forms based on insects and animals.

Cabot, a self taught artist, first encountered clay as an artistic medium in 1940 when her husband, Erni, brought it home from work. Her first works were coil built, then, as electric wheels became increasingly available, she started throwing pottery. After a glaze calculation class at the University of Hawaii in 1956 she and Erni began developing the lustrous satin glazes used on her "feelies."

An interview with Rose Cabat by Lisa Bunker done for the Perspectives of the Past Oral History Project is at the Pima County Public Library in Tucson, Arizona.
