Another Hang-up

This wall hanging is a classic ceramic in the tradition of German "Fat Lava" that it is an incredibly textural and multidimensional bas-relief. Generous amounts of copper dust highlight the still life of contrasting bottle figures on an earthy backdrop.
The manufacturers mark is pressed into the reverse side, and I have just now discovered it is an original by an accomplished artist in many mediums named Helmut Friedrich Schäffenacker (1921-2010).
Piece measures 15" tall and 5" wide
