This beautiful pottery was created by Johnston and Gentithes Studios of Seagrove, NC. Added to our collection in 1998 while attending the Arts & Crafts Conference at the Grove Park Inn (Asheville, North Carolina), I believe this is a shino glaze, but perhaps someone can correct me if I’m wrong.
I wish I knew more about this Mid-Century Modern, set along the seaside canals of Naples Island in Long Beach, California. Built in the 1940s, the home was remodeled in 1956 by renowned Long Beach architect Ray Kappe.
I’ve always paused and admired it since I was a kid growing up in the neighborhood back in the 60s/70s.
Another personal waterfront favorite along the canals of Naples Island in Long Beach, California is this 1948 George Montierth-designed mid-century modernist.
Surprisingly, not much is published about the locally prolific Long Beach, California architect, who not only designed a number of timeless buildings from his offices in the Ocean Center Building in downtown Long Beach in the 1940s and 50s, but also mentored several young architects who went on to higher fame.
