As we straddle the seasons—that unpredictable period between Winter and Spring—let us shine a little light on another sensory counterpoint: the interplay of black and white. Over the next few days, we'll share part of our collection of black, white and black & white merchandise—all for sale in our on-line store.
Black and white becomes—or can become—a shade of grey. Such is the case with this West German Modernist pitcher made by Emons & Söhn: foamy white dappled over black. I find such a simple coloration and texture endlessly fascinating. Very understated. Very elegant. It reminds me of the planet Mercury, whizzing quickly around the Sun, some 90 million miles from Earth. What a wonderful addition this piece would be to a collection of black, white and grey ceramics! Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
More Black & White offerings tomorrow.
