A Margrit Linck studio pottery vase. The handled vase has a large, round shape that tapers at rim and base. It is 9.5 inches tall, has an off-white base glaze with rust color falling leaf motif. It has a 0.12 inch glaze chip at rim and glaze chip at base.
Typical of these early works of Margrit Linck, the vase is hand-formed . According to Mrs. Linck, the form is the most important factor in her work. In her hands, vases & pitchers experience a metamorphosis which are further enhanced by her colorful glaze decoration that borders between abstract and surreal. Often in her work, one can see glimpses of recognizable animals and figures and there are works whereby the interpretation lies in the eye of the beholder. And there in lies the beauty of the work of Margrit Linck. She is considerd the grand dame of 20th century Swiss pottery design.
