Vase - handthrown dark clay coated with a white matte glaze. This is the last piece of a series of twelve. Maybe I keep it for my house and my flowers: I am sure all potters know the feeling when a favourite work is gone, it is often followed from a kind of emptiness. That is why I keep a work from time to time because I try to avoid this feeling. Silly, I know....
Teacups coated with a green celadon craquele glaze - there are always some of these in my shop because I love them very much: I started with this shape more then ten years ago and it is still one of my favourites and I think it is a timeless classic. I also make them in porcelain or in a black clay as well as in regular stoneware in different colors: In a warm brown, an ice blue and in the green you see on the pic.
Samstags im Dezember öffne ich immer auch von 11-14 Uhr meine Ausstellung und mein Atelier in Zürich an der Culmannstrasse 46: Freue mich über Besuch und offeriere gegen die Kälte etwas Warmes zu trinken und Panettone als Hommage an meine italienische Wurzeln😊! Every Saturday in December I will open my exhibition and workshop in Zurich also from 11-14 h: I look forward to your visit and I offer a warm drink agaInst the cold outside and a piece of panettone remembering my italian roots!
Porcelain teabowl - I like the very fine form of the bowl and it is a pleasure to drink a warm tea - especially when it is so horrible cold outside: below zero celsius here in Switzerland .
My Japan trip comes to an end: Last day in Tokyo with three of my teacups, an iron black one, a translucent porcelain one and a celadon green one. I spent very interesting days in Japan and met wonderful people around, drunk a lot of tea and coffee as well and and and..... I really hope to come back one day: Million thanks to all the Japanese, you are just great!
Still in Japan - passed wonderful hours on Naoshima.
Tokyo and Tadao Ando and November - my Japan trip has started very colorful with sunshine and rain at the same day. I am jetlagged but happy to be here.
Holiday - and a last teatime in my workshop before travelling: For the next two weeks I am not around - I am sure I will see a lot of beautiful and interesting things in Japan.
A light for the world . All I can do now . Quite nothing, I know . It is cold outside .
I made a lot of teabowls with a stoneware clay and coated them with this wonderful white and matte glaze: Here you can see one of my favourite bowls. All of them have more or less the same shape but with minimal differences because I am not working with a measure instrument but only with my intuition. Today I was very happy to drink my afternoon tea from one of my new tea bowls.
