hedwig bollhagen – vase | c. 1957

 


the favourite addition to my collection of design made in gdr last year – a late 1950s sgraffito piece by hedwig bollhagen. it combines hedwig bollhagens style and the manner of decoration of the artist charles crodel, who has worked several times at the hb-werkstätten. this master piece reflects the influence of her friendship. [sgraffito decorated stoneware, h. 24cm]

happy 2014!
