Vintage Swiss 1950s Studio Pottery Vase by Margrit Linck for sale
Item ID: 380069
A very rare Margrit Linck studio pottery form model. This vase is a rare example from the 'white series'. With this particularly piece, Linck abstracts the woman's figure to create this vase known as "Frau". It is more of a sculpture that happens to be a vase.
The vase is also a fine example of Margrit Linck's work whereby she reduced her interpretation of modern pottery to its bare essence, the form. The all white glaze allows the viewer not to be distracted and to focus on what Linck thought to be the most important part of pottery, the form. The vase is 8.45 inches tall and 5.7 inches wide and in very good condition.
about the designer :: Linck, Margrit Margrit Linck’s works are found in major international museum collections and have a cult following amongst 20th century ceramic arts specialists. Her works reflect the major art movements of the early 20th century, including sleek, organic, avandt-garde forms and exciting abstract glaze decorations. After completing her studies in Bern, she was greatly inspired by her sabbaticals in Berlin (1924-1925) and in Paris (1927 to 1930). Her original inspiration was the traditional pottery of the Heimberg, Steffisburg and Thun ateliers of Switzerland but with her own flair and special eye and hand for the contemporary. One could say that she ushered Swiss pottery into the 20th century but spectacularly so.
