johannes-andreas urban – vase | c. 1965

 


this massive piece has the appearance of french ceramic from the beginning of the last century. currently it would be the highlight in every copper-trimmed interior-magazine. in fact this timeless beauty was crafted by the master potter johannes-andreas urban in the 1960s. [multi-glazed chamotte clay, h. 21cm]

johannes-andreas urban – vase | c. 1955

 


the thuringian forest was covered by its first significant snowfall of the season this week. maybe the snowy hills viewable from his workshop in friedrichroda inspired johannes-andreas urban to this style of glaze. [glazed stoneware, h. 11,2cm]
