This is a lovely small Dumler & Breiden Keramik vase, West Germany circa 1970’s.
A Fantastic piece of West German ‘Fat Lava’ pottery. Very reminiscent of Studio pottery of the era, and of the complex glazes of master ceramicists such as Marcello Fantoni.
The simple classical baluster form has a base black glossy glaze. This is overlaid with complex crusty lava glazes, in bands, foaming and dripping in black, white and light blue colours, and forming circular motifs on two sides.
These are filled with a wonderful lustrous bronze glaze, and the vase is further enlivened with dripping bands of green and bronze.
Very organic the colours and glazes echoing nature, rocks, earth, fire and water, characteristic of the early 1970’s, echoing a break from Modernism and the Space Age styles.
A Great addition to any collection of West German / Fat Lava / European Art Pottery, and would complement any retro, vintage, 70’s, minimal or contemporary interior.
In Excellent Condition no marks, chips or scratches
Impressed mark to the base ‘479 / 14 Germany’, with the D&B logo.
