Waylande Gregory, a leading modernist of the 20th century, is known internationally for influencing the direction of figurative art with technical advancement that enabled the creation of monumental scale sculptures, as well as for his enduring limited editions of décorative ceramics popular in the 1940 – 1950’s sold in exclusive stores such as Tiffany’s, Bergdorf Goodman and Asprey’s London. He is best known for his groundbreaking sculptures that dominated the 1939 New York World’s Fair (at that time, the largest sculpture ever created) and for his patented process allowing the fusion of glass to clay.
