Matt Carlton
QwkDog 3D Bauer Pottery Monterey Bookcase

Potter Matt (Matterson) Carlton arrived in Los Angeles in 1915. After a brief stint at Pacific Clay Products, Matt joined Bauer as a turner. Carlton began turning out a variety of artware and vases, including the iconic Rebekah vase. Following the style trends of the Arts & Crafts movement, the earliest of Bauer’s artware was glazed in a matte green finish similar to other pottery manufacturers of the period.
