This is a Great Steuler Keramik vase, West Germany circa late 1960’s / early 70’s.
A Fantastic piece of retro West German art pottery from one of the lesser known makers. Probably designed by the renowned Cari Zalloni who created space age / optical pieces for them during this period.
The vase has a squat rectangular form, rounded on all corners and with recesses to the largest sides. Topped off with a chimney-like neck and double banded rim.
The top has a lovely vibrant matte orange glaze with a pumice texture. A black tube lined ‘lava’ glaze separates this from the lower earthy organic foamy drip glazes in cream and brown, with a matte pumice effect.
A Great addition to any collection of West German / Fat Lava / European Art Pottery, and would complement any retro, vintage, 60’s, pop art, space age, modernist, minimal or contemporary interior.
In Excellent Condition, no marks, chips or scratches. There are a few small burst bubbles of missing glaze which appear to be from production, they do not detract from the look on display.
Measures 18 x 10 x 15 cm / 7 x 4 x 6in.
The base has the Steuler mark and the form no. 445 / 15.
