Kurt Weiser –Semi Concious

In the hands of Kurt Weiser, (b. 1950) the centuries-old tradition of china paint on porcelain is given new life. Weiser’s sumptuous, provocative teapots and jars, resplendent with lush jungle scenes, can be both alluring and unsettling. Detailed depictions of tropical splendor become wayward reveries as radiant colors and subtle distortions transform classic porcelain vessels. – Stephen Robison Flickr

    This post has reminded me just why exactly I adore your blog. Not only for your love of pottery, but also because you recognize the hard work and dedication potters give just to complete one piece of art, that may take from a day to years to complete. You recognize renown potters as well as those who are less recognized and that is beautiful.

    Congratulations on the beautiful composition of this site and insightful comments. The Wahliss vase you feature is especially beautiful for it’s complexity. It is not a Pergamon but a Japonisme piece and has been decorated in the same style over several molds. Keep up the fabulous work & Thank you!

    As a member of the San Francisco Ceramic Circle we have been exposed to great works from many time periods. These pieces hold their own and provide an exciting introductions to the 20th century. These imaginative forms and beautiful glazes fill us with admiration.

    Historical Design claims it was by Olivier de Sorra / Pierrefonds (Count Hallez d’Arros) link Olivier de Sorra / Pierrefonds (Count Hallez d’Arros)-1900 —link http://historicaldesign.com/product/olivier-de-sorra-pierrefonds-count-hallez-darros-french-art-nouveau-six-branch-vase-c-1900/ I’ll credit with both

    Dear Mr. Hood, I am so curious if you have any idea of the whereabouts of the Max Läuger Vase you show. Somewhere in the 1970’s my grandmother offered me its ‘brother’ telling me that my grandfather and a friend of his bought the set of two at an auction, this was in Holland, and split the set up between the two of them. The one I have has the same model and colours, but different forms and pattern in the leaves. I I could upload , you would receive an immage. Rik
