We’ve just received a shipment of vintage ceramics from Europe, including the large “grasshopper green” vase shown above. Its inspiration is classic Chinese—based on a humble, utilitarian vessel which might have held water, vinegar or fermented duck eggs. Even the string netting, which once encircled the original, are represented in a stylized fashion. Please click on the photo above to learn more about this West German piece.
More newly-acquired ceramics tomorrow.
