WMF (Wurttembergische Metallwaren Fabrik)

Post by Susan Bearder on February 17th 2009, 8:57 pm

I I wish to add this piece as a German piece of pottery as it was made in the 30s before Germay was divided. I have quite a bit of research on this short lived experiment of WMF to enter the studio pottery genre. I was very fortunate to find this example in a charity shop many years ago. Colour texture etc most interesting.Susie.

very interesting Susie,even then they used the thick,lave-like glaze.
I have wondered for years about the origins of lava glaze,I always assumed it was first used in Scandinavia but the 1930's is quite early??

What about Ruskin? Some of his glazes are very drippy indeed...

In my humble opinion it was an influence on Lucie Rie. I have a piece of Ruskin about the same size but feels like a totally different kind of potting and glaze but I have a Pilkington vase which moves towards the orange peel effect but not as exaggerated as this piece. Susie
