watering can | presswerk tambach [attrib.] | c. 1960

 


a simple shaped watering can with recessed grips amazed with very good functional handling: both grip positions are fine balanced and no dripping. the plastic smells like pieces from the presswerk tambach. but i have no idea of its origin. [polyethylene, h. 16cm]

vase ‹form 1177› | steingutfabrik strehla | c. 1965

 


i remember well my childhood. always i’ve thought strehla vases are the epitome of ugliness. after some surprises i have more respect towards steingutfabrik strehla. for example this piece with its modernist style when the bottom says strehla. but these exceptions are rarer in the late production. for the most of the1980s pieces my life is to short to find them nice. [ceramic ware, h. 23,7cm]
