We’ve just received another large shipment—mostly art pottery—this time from Continental Europe. Over the next few days, we’ll be sharing with you select pieces from this newly-acquired collection.
Shown above, a most-handsome piece by Steuler. A “foamy” highly-textured light blue glaze drips down over a metallic gunmetal underglaze.
Founded in 1917, Steuler operated in the Hohr-Grenzhausen region of West-Central Germany. This region, half-way between Frankfurt and Cologne, was a center of German ceramics production—home to many pottery workshops and ceramics trade schools. The area was given the nickname Kannenbäckerstadt or “Jug-Baking Town” and the region’s coat-of-arms is a chevron depicting three ceramic jugs.
More newly-acquired art pottery tomorrow.
