  • Catalogue Essay

    This rare punch set was produced by Gem Clay Forming Company as a Christmas gift to its employees during the mid-1930s. Paul Schreckengost, Viktor’s younger brother, worked as a mold-maker at Gem Clay and quickly established himself as one of America’s most talented ceramic artisans. His designs were evocative of the time in which they were made, utilizing streamlined and slick but sturdy forms.
