mario enke – handled vase | c. 1985

 


i fell in love at the first sight in this brilliant piece of mario enke. the appearance of this perfect amphora-shaped vase is quite simply and timeless. the unexpected quality of the glaze is very unusually for gdr circumstances. i can not resume the correct order of glazing and etching. but the result is breathtaking – velvet surface versus partly shiny, hare’s fur glaze versus slight craquelé reduction glaze – multifaceted in every respect. [stonware, multiple glaze, etched, h. 32cm]
