Go happy and in best of company into a 2017!
My first post of the year: I start with showing you the new porcelain collection I have made. Nothing new about the technical aspects: All pieces are handthrown. I want to go on with porcelain tableware this year and soon I will present new works. As you probably realized, I change the material and work with both, stoneware and porcelain - I cannot decide for one only. When I started my own pottery I was stressed by this because I forced myself to working with only one material. But I was not able to keep this up....In the last years I accepted that this is my nature and that I need the variety in my life. I will show you the results during the next months...Do you remember? I told about an old house from the 16h century I bought in the South of Switzerland? I will renovate it this year and I will open my mountain studio and a gallery there. The photo of the porcelain tableware is made in this house, it has a wooden room with a very special atmosphere that I like a lot.

  • And another old work from the same series as on the picture before: Handbuilt and big (diameter about 30cm), a vase coated only with smoke traces from an open fire. Years ago I made a lot of handbuilt works, then I stopped. I am not sure why I did not go on.... but probably I will restart working with this technique that I liked much. #beauty #ceramics #vase #memories #keramik #pottery #töpferei #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #earth #keramik #art #handmade #schwarz #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #series #smoke #steinzeug #japan #korea #craft

  • An old work from about four years go - good memories: This is a handbuilt big vase, coated with a black iron glaze. Maybe I should make some of them again? #beauty #ceramics #vase #memories #keramik #pottery #töpferei #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #scene #keramik #art #handmade #schwarz #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #steinzeug #japan #korea #craft

  • Bowls - different sizes and different clays, all wheelthrown in stoneware. Today I did not work that much - but I finished a client's commission - because it was so beautiful to look out of the studio window: It was snowing the whole day and now the houses and streets are white and wonderful. I do not like winter very much but a scene like today makes me happy. And it was funny, too, because yesterday I finished a book called 'Schnee' (snow) by Orhan Pamuk - and today so much snow!#beauty #ceramics #bowl #snow #keramik #pottery #töpferei #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #scene #keramik #art #form #töpferei #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #steinzeug #japan #korea #craft

  • Love this place where I live and work when I am not in Zurich and I already wrote about before: It is a beautiful small village in the South of Switzerland, and there is the old house I am renovating. Actually it is impossible to work there at the moment because - as you can see on the photo - winter arrived, so it is cold in the house because there is no heating. I am working on it until the next winter.....But for photoshootings it is a very good place also in winter - some of the photos I posted recently have been taken there. It is a very quiet and romantic space surrounded by wonderful landscape and very nice people live in the village. There they do not speak German but Italian - and it brings back some memories from my childhood because my father was born in Italy. He died when I was in my twenties and he unfortunately never saw my pottery development. Well, when you travel through Switzerland you maybe stop by - the village is called Soazza and it is near Bellinzona. Does anyone of you know it? #l...

  • Finally it is Friday! I had a very busy week and now I am happy to relax. Well, when I looked around I found this place for my porcelain bowls - a great weekend to everybody. Today, in Zurich it was most of the time a grey day with snow.....let's see how it will be tomorrow. #porcelain #ceramics #tableware #white #pottery #teabowl #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #teeschale #geschirr #breakfast #töpferei #keramik #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #porzellan #japan #korea #craft

  • And black porcelain again - still working with the new material and trying it out in different sizes and forms. Soon I will know if it works the way I want: Sometimes the work as a potter seems hard for me but sometimes it is the best of all my professions I ever had! #porcelain #ceramics #tableware #black #pottery #teabowl #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #teeschale #geschirr #breakfast #form #keramik #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #töpferei #japan #korea #craft

  • Vase under the oven in the very old house: I made a lot of this kind of vases because I love the shape. This is the only one I hold for me, coated with a green craquele celaden glaze.
