West German Pottery Illustrators

The field of West German Pottery is ever-expanding. Now it seems that the vibrancy and vividity of the glazes, forms and colours are inspiring people far more talented than me to create some beautiful artwork.

Elisandra’s Illustrations:

Germany based illustrator Elisandra has created some fantastic digital artwork, based on the West German designs.

Her blog, Sevenstars Images, is lovely – not only are her West German and Fat Lava prints gorgeous; her other illustrations are equally as eye-catching.

Looking at some of these, I really wish I had a more artistic nature. I can make things and create arty stuff to a certain extent, but nowhere near to this level. I wouldn’t even know where to begin!

I think Kevin (@Spritzdekor) commented on the Facebook group for West Germany Pottery that he could create the previous picture in real life. Imagine that!

Magprint Original Prints

Margaret is based in Toronto, Canada and her prints couldn’t be more different from Elisandra’s – both in production and style.

My mum actually has this pot! Might be a good idea for a present for her.

This last one is my favourite, for obvious reasons:

I love the pictures that Margaret has put on her Etsy page which show how she makes the prints.

Again, I really wish I was a bit more capable of making something like this. I’ll have to reconcile myself to the fact that I can’t and just desire after other people’s work instead.

    thanks so much Emma! 🙂 This way I discovered Margrets amazing work. For some reason I was thinking I am the only one to illustrate the vases, but that was naive, the world is big 😀
