In Black & White - I


Scheurich West German Modernist Ceramic Vase with Dappled Black and White Glazing (LEO Design)


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.

A simple, Modernist shape surges to life with the addition of a dynamic, mottled glaze—foamy white dappled over black.  This West German vase, made by Scheurich in the 1960's or 1970's, looks sensational alone—or even better as part of a black and white grouping. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More Black & White offerings tomorrow.
