Art pottery dish - Horst Kerstan

Post by treasure.hunter.D on August 6th 2012, 4:11 pm

Really cool, IMHO anyway, art pottery dish or maybe it's an ashtray. The design on the face is what had me drawn to it. The dish itself is very much like a high end tile or stone that you would pit in an entryway to your home etc. That's the best way I can describe the finish and texture as I have some experience with that sort of thing. I've had a devil of a time trying to photograph the sig as the surface is so reflective. I hope I got it clear enough for someone to id. Anyone recognize the signature? Sorry about the crappy crop on one of the photos, it was a rush job, lol... Thanks.

I think I will have to agree and I thank you all for your help. The sig combined with the unique way he forms the bases of his pottery I think makes it a done deal.

That's absolutely wonderful.

Thank-you
