christine freigang – tea set | c. 1995

 


today, i was informed, that the ceramist christine freigang died in the beginning of the year. a great ceramist and an outstanding personality who has been involved at the developing of the keramikmuseum bürgel in its current form. a great loss for the ceramic community. i will miss her warm-hearted, open and friendly being.

getting published reminds me to report the bürgel potter market. the collectors market was in front of christina freigang’s workshop, the former workshop of her father walter gebauer. it was the best place in bürgel for starting conversation, because some visitors knew little anecdotes about him. and also the potters made their way to the collectors market to discuss and philosophize about shapes and glazes in front of the old pots. it has been a while that so much beautiful old ceramics were buyable in bürgel, christina freigang said. a very relaxed athmosphere all along, that whets the appetite for more. i will present some of my barter objects and the purchases soon.
