We kindly suggest you read the whole description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to guarantee the authenticity of our objects. Peculiar and original German ceramic jug colored with a beautiful shade of red, black, and a vivid orange; it has a simple shape but at the same time innovative and modernist; the beautiful and vivid colors are balanced and proportioned respecting a minimalist design; the glazing of the jar was obtained by first laying down one color, proceeding to fix it by firing it in a kiln, then the same procedure was performed for the other colors; on the bottom bears the traditional mark found on this type of object, indicating that the object was created in a limited series with the jug number and the model number; unfortunately, on our jug, this mark is barely legible, but it exists and allows us to say that this object was produced between 1968 and 1971 in a craft workshop in the city of Dresden (then in East Germany), an important center of porcelain and ceramic production. "Fat lava" is the name given to a certain style of East German art pottery that spread in the post-war period characterized by an extravagant amount of typical shapes, glazes, textures, and colors ranging from dark brown to orange, forest green to cobalt blue, ruby red to canary yellow; the production strategy of the artisans of this style involved rather simple and strict shapes that in combination of all the different decorations and colored glazes resulted in a very wide range of pieces. Our jug is presented with beautiful and harmonious proportions, and because of this strong personality, it can be placed in any style of decor. The pitcher is in excellent condition. Measurements diameter cm.22, height cm.30. For all our shipments we use special packaging materials (wooden crates, styrofoam, etc.) for maximum protection and safety of the objects.
