Viktor Schreckengost began his career around 1930 designing artistic ceramics, such as this Cubist-inspired charger for Cowan Pottery in which he depicts angular, fragmented forms from multiple perspectives. Working with innovative bright glazes, Schreckengost created bold compositions that were both affordable and sophisticated decorative artworks for the Depression-era consumer.
