Please view and enlarge photos as they are part of the description.
*Born in the USSR at the turn of the century, Dimitry Varley was an economist for the United Nations in his early career. Persecuted during the McCarthy era, he retained his job but was kept from traveling abroad. He began using his free time to become a master gardener and to foster his love of pottery. Married to the renowned modern dance teacher, Bessie Schonberg, Dimitry was often surrounded by creative and inspiring individuals who encouraged his pottery career.
Known for his use of organic shapes and glazes that mimicked those found in nature, Dimitry always remained true to his ideas of marrying form with function and was able to showcase the fruits of his gardening labors within his clay creations. less
