Space Age Ceramics - part IV

Carstens Modernist Pitcher with Lunar Pumice Glazing (LEO Design)

Form is nice—but shapes can be easily copied. It's in the glaze master's secret notebook—properly locked away—that the magic is revealed. And this glaze is sensational! Foamy waves of white pumice cling to an equally-textured grey underglaze. It all adds up to an otherworldly effect—like the gaseous clouds encircling a distant planet. Made by Carstens in West Germany in the 1960's or 1970's.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
