Patinated Perfection

One of our most celebrated names in German Pottery is that of Richard Uhlemeyer (1900-1954), whose work enjoyed a 6 month retrospective at the Keramik-Museum-Berlin in 2011. This type of glaze is called a "copper reduction" giving the coloration a patinated look. The purposefully crazed or variegated surface gives the piece an antiqued appeal. At 22"h x 15"w - this large vase is monumental in both scale and as an artistic achievement.
