ART IN CLAY, HATFIELD

lukacs-ringel-vase

I usually list my top ten potters from the annual ceramics festival at Hatfield, but this year I’m just posting a picture of a vase I bought from Susanne Lukács-Ringel. Her studio is in the south of Germany where she fires in a multi-chamber, wood-fuel kiln. The variegated surface on this beautiful faceted vase is created entirely by the flying wood ash, which volatilizes at high temperatures and then condenses on the pots, colouring them with random patterns from the minerals it carries.

  1. Hi. I came across a Tea set in the attic of my Grandmother. The stamp on Bottom says
    DORA above a crown and C.S.&H. Co. underneath. Any ideas or where I could find out more. Have a couple of photos.
