A vintage, 1950s Swiss studio pottery vase from the atelier of Fritz Haussmann. The vase is 4.75 inches tall and in very good condition. Fritz Haussmann was a German trained ceramicist who set up shop and family in Switzerland. His atelier was one of the largest and most successful from the late 20s to the 50s. The studio was famous for its simple shape with intricate, often experimental glazes.
Fritz Haussman created his now famous pottery teapot with the downturned spout for the National Swiss Exhibition in the 30’s. However, this design was just a step in a continuous process that started with his training in Germany to incorporate Bauhaus elements in finding practical solutions for daily design problems. In addition to his popular dinner and tea services, Haussman was greatly influenced by Chinese and Japanese pottery and applied subtle yet spectacular glazes to his simple atelier, mold formed pottery.
