You are looking at a wonderful vintage "Birds Driving Vintage Cars" decal plate by well known artist Howard Kottler. This plate found at Auction is in Excellent Condition, with a few very minor scrapes. The white spots seen in photos are reflections. I have seen plates by artist Howard Kottler sold for as much as $7,000.00 a plate. This piece is perfect for Modern Art Collector.

Howard Kottler (March 5, 1930 - January 21, 1989) was a professor at the University of Washington who was influenced by the San Francisco Bay Area funk art movement. He is best known for his decal plates that rejected traditional studio ceramic practices. His decal plates were decorated with appropriated images from popular culture to convey Kottler's political, social, and personal messages. Kottler developed a reputation for using coded images, wordplay, and biting humor giving him a reputation as a satirist and decalcomaniac.

Begun in 1966 and continued until the early 1980’s, Kottler’s plate series was radical. Using commercially produced ceramic plates (which was unheard of for the time) as the canvas for commercially produced and hand made decals, Kottler created witty, pointed, and biting social commentaries that addressed sexuality, religion and war. He states, “decals were used not so much to effect a simulacrum as to set up a visual conundrum or as a form of art historical commentary.” His use of appropriated imagery predates the movement within the fine arts world that took place in the 1980’s.

This piece will be mailed either FedEx or USPS insured and signature required.
