Smalls  La Gardo Tackett / Architectural Pottery It was a Tackett / AP sort of a weekend.  From the Architectural Pottery Pro Artisan catalog: “….a pleasing sculpture, David Cressey provides a form that functions equally well for cigarettes or as a holder of clips, rubber bands and other desk-top requirements.” It was raining Ferris Shacknove baskets this weekend.  Designed by  Andree Ferris and Reta Shacknove. The literary section Karl Lightfoot for Lightfoot Studio Lightfoot Studio, 1949
