Classified as part of the Mid-Century modern. Movement who was best known for her innovative glazes upon small porcelain pots called'feelies' often in the shape of onions and figs. She was the oldest known actively practicing pottery artist in the United States. And began the development of glaze formulas which were later applied to the "feelie" forms that become Rose Cabat's signature pieces.
In about 1960, Rose hit upon the basic form of the vessel which would become the foundation of the "feelies". She created a pot with a delicate closed neck, which could not hold even a single slender stem or stalk. She stated, A vase can hold weeds or flowers, but can't it just be a spot of beauty?Feelies are described as onion, fig, cucumber and saucer-shaped ceramic vases terminating in an upward closed neck. Bruce Block, an avid collector, has described them as sensual and tactile with a very specific unforgettable texture, spiritual seeming to contain a type of energy. She developed a silky satiny glaze, and it was not until around 1960 that she had hit upon the first of the appropriate forms, svelte and sleek to match the glaze. She exclaimed, "Now this one's a feelie", coining the term. Upon developing the new glazes, she felt that she needed new forms to apply the glazes to, different from what she made before, "craft fair" style coiled heads and wind bells. She was quoted as saying, The old things did not look good... I wanted simpler shapes that went with the glazes. They are typically globular in shape, tightening down to a minuscule neck glazed to a satin surface. The tactile experience is most important.
