Presenting a set of bold and eye-catching pieces of 1970s Pop Art ceramic by designer Renee Neue. Each piece has been crafted into the abstract goblet form before the vibrant glaze was handpainted.
The base gloss glaze is a vibrant and deep lime green that is overlaid with encircling of black and cobalt blue. The bands of colour intermingle, creating pale blues, turquoise and deep green.
Both the shape and the colour palette of the glaze are rare in themselves, as is finding the combination of both elements. These pieces were designed as soup bowls but would suit a variety of uses such as small planters.
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 on each piece that is commensurable with the age, please see photos as part of the condition report. Base of each piece is marked with the Hutschenreuther Lion and '1814' ceramic stamp.
