A vintage Margrit Linck studio pottery bowl with a long slender neck and very round body that flows into a small pedestal vase. It is painted with a symmetrical, two color glaze which allows the vase to look different, depending on the angle. It is 10.7 inches tall and in very good condition.
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 and pitchers experienced a metamorphsis 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.
