WAYLANDE GREGORY

Among the most important American ceramicists of the 20th century, Wayland Gregory helped shape the Art Deco style in sculpture and the decorative arts while pushing the technical boundaries of his craft. Luminaries like Albert Einstein, Henry Fonda and Elsie de Wolfe collected Gregory’s bold, highly stylized work, which looks as modern today as when first sold at Gump’s in the 40’s and 50’s. Gregory’s great grand-nephew Bryan Downey protects his uncle’s legacy, drawing from a vast design library to create handcrafted high-fired porcelain and stoneware with rich matte glazes infused with 22 carat gold and platinum.

MURANO GLASS

Admired and respected during the Renaissance, the master glassmakers on the Italian island of Murano earned a reputation as the masters of fine glassware. Combine one part magic transformation, one part family tradition, and one part exquisite materials and you’ve got something that looks a lot like the beauty of today’s Murano glass. Shop the Collection.

COLLECTIBLES

LIMOGES

Limoges porcelain, a collector's favorite since the 18th century, is made by an active community of highly skilled French artisans known for their hand painted designs and intricately-hinged handiwork. Each porcelain box is now synonymous with the Limoges name, and we work closely with the designers to create unique pieces that are exclusively available at Gump's. We couldn’t be happier to be a small part of this important and long-lasting tradition. Shop the Collection.

BRIAN ARTHUR

For a man who began his career in English pottery and dabbled in sculpture and bronze, Brian Arthur certainly created a new path for himself the moment he fell in love with bronze. And we’re happy he did. Each of Arthur’s pieces are cast using the lost wax process and are then polished and patinaed in striking earth tones—a nod to the beauty and durability of bronze and to the natural world that so often inspires.

LOET VANDERVEEN

Loet Vanderveen first developed a love for animals as a child living next to the Rotterdam Zoo in Holland. As an adult, Vanderveen worked as a fashion designer and ceramicist, but eventually moved to Big Sur and became enamored with the wildlife surrounding him. It was here in California that he began working on the richly patinead bronze sculptures he's known for today. Shop the Collection.
