Presenting a bold and eyecatching piece of 1970s Pop Art ceramic by designer Renee Neue.
The sliced cylinder shape of the vase provides an ideal canvas for the radiating and drip glaze.
The base gloss glaze is a vibrant Lime green, swirled with a band of Lemon yellow at the neck. The 'shoulders' of the vase is brushed with grey, swept outwards into the radiating band of yellow. The decor is finished with a drip glaze of Cobalt / Kingfisher blue which is delineated in black.
Both the shape of the vase and the colour palette of the glaze are rare in themselves, as is finding the combination of both elements.
A BIT OF HISTORY
Renée Neue was head of the art department for Hutschenreuther in the 1970s, who had perfected the art of mixing bright, crisp colours with deep earth tones in a series of statement vases for Hutschenreuther Ceramics.
Hutschenreuther was founded in 1814 by Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther in Hohenburg of Northern Bavaria, the manufactory began life producing hand-painted gilded porcelain and was inherited by Hutschenreuther's wife Johanna and their two sons upon his death. Over the years, the company made acquisitions in buying other German porcelain makers: Altrohlau, Arzburg and Tirschenreuth, Königszelt,Silesia.
Excellent. No chips, cracks or scratches, there is gentle crazing which is commensurable with the age of the piece, please see photos as part of the condition report. Base of vase is marked with the Hutschenreuther Lion and '1814' ceramic stamp.
