christian richter – vase | c. 1965

the impressive list of workshops, where christian richter got his education and work after his apprenticeship, sounds like the who’s who of east german ceramists: heiner-hans körting, walter gebauer, eva schulz-endert, karl grothe and hedwig bollhagen. after his traveling years he founded an own workshop in berlin-niederschönhausen. this piece is a early example of his work. its contrast between the rough surface and the smooth rim is very typical. [chamotte (grog) clay, h. 14,5cm]
