This aerodynamic vision of the polar bear was created by American sculptor Gordon Newell for Architectural Pottery. Formed from glazed stoneware, the sculpture represents the typical stylistic code of the 1950s period. At the edge of design and fine art, the polar bear is the beautiful example of the intimate domestic sculpture. This example was for sale last year. Before that, the bear was the part of the interior of the famous Lovell Health house in Los Angeles, which was designed by Richard Neutra between 1927 and 1929.
