The hallmarks of this distinctive German pottery style are several layers of thick glazes, with one dripping down over the others like a lava flow on a volcano’s slope. Some pieces carry the lava motif further, displaying rough surfaces with cracks or even holes. The vases here instead present their Brutalist volcanic effect purely visually, beneath a polished top glaze. Also characteristic are their striking colors: including emerald green, fiery red, metallic blue, and molten gold.
