Bob Kinzie Pottery Lamp

This lamp, a classic specimen of the California artisan pottery movement from the mid century era, was designed by Bob Kinzie for Affiliated Craftsmen. Affiliated Craftsmen was founded in the early 1960s by Bob Kinzie and friends. This particular lamp was, according to Sandy Kinzie*, likely thrown by Bob’s partner, Phil Barkdol**, and features a walnut base.
