Paul Dressler

Compressed Vase with Rusty Red and Gunmetal Glazing by Paul Dressler, Grootenburg Germany (LEO Design)

Two of Paul Dressler's signature treatments is the use of mottled gunmetal glazes and a hand-incised "webbing" which gives the piece a "recovered archeological" look. Dressler was amongst the most important German Modernist ceramicists between the wars.  To learn more about this vase, made in the 1960's, please click on the photo above.
