about the designer :: Haussman, Fritz

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.
