West German Pottery Exhibition: June 18th 2011


This looks to be a fantastic exhibition. Featuring – quite literally – more than just ‘Fat Lava’, the exhibition will feature unusual, rare and studio pottery. Details from the Pottery and Glass forum are below:

More than Fat Lava Mid Century & Modern German Ceramics

Adres: M.v.B. Bastiaansestraat 15
1054 RS Amsterdam

Exhibition to be opened by Mark Hill

The exhibition will focus on companies like Schramberg, Schäffenacker, Kummer, Ruscha, Kerstan, Kupfermuhle Keramik, Keto, Kechle etc, bringing a different feel to the West/East German experience. We will be showing a lot of pieces which are rare and difficult to find. There will be Fat Lava pieces on display also from Roth, Ruscha, Carstens, Kruetz, Otto, ES-Keramik, Ceramano to name but a few.

Launching at the exhibition will be a book dedicated to German Studio Pottery, called Bauhaus Generated by Kevin James Graham which
introduces over 700 Studio, Atelier and Töpferei potters.

A Emiel Monnink & Kevin Graham Exhibition

For more information, visit the Pottery and Glass forum and talk to ‘Madbrit’ A.K.A Kevin Graham or message him @Spritzdekor on Twitter.

Unfortunately, I can’t go to this because of holiday constraints with school. However, I am massively looking forward to seeing pictures from the exhibit! I know many of Kevin and Emiel’s private collections will be shown. This is one of the pieces that I would love to see in real life:
