Richly Rusty

Rust-Glazed "Flying Saucer" Pitcher by Gerda Heukeroth for Carstens (LEO Design)

Here's another "rusty" piece—less "planetary" and more like leather.  It, too, was made by Gerda Heuckeroth for Carstens in the 1960's or 1970's.  The Modernist  "flying saucer" shape is softened by the warm, dappled, naturalistic glazing.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
