Recently I was inspired to investigate MCM European pottery designs, due to Mark Hill's publication of 2 unique exhibits, with collector and owner of the pieces from Italy and Germany, Dr Graham Cooley.
I really enjoyed his presentation in the SKLO booklet, also from an exhibit with more Cooley glass pieces from the MCM Czech Republic.
It was surprising to find many styles as well as the famous 'fat lava' approach of rough porous and mat finish of mixed dripped glazes, of red with black ash tones.
The 2 new items I am posting are marked as you can see, they are small compared to the large floor vases also produced then, from 6 to 7 inches high. Interesting to learn and see what else they were doing.
Info from site 'Pots And Pots':
1926 – Present (1975 – ceased decorative ceramics)
Founded in 1926 by Jakob Schwaderlapp in Ransbach-Baumbach (who went on to form Ceremano in 1959). The name is derived from his name and the town where it was located (Jakob Schwaderlapp, Ransbach-Baumbach).
Production of vases ceased in 1975 and the company concentrated on industrial items and tiles (which they still make today).
