Wirkkala Bottles by Iittala

 These bottles, designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1959, 
have been relaunched by Iittala in 2015 on the occasion of Wirkkala´s 100th birthday in a limited number of 2015 pieces.



Also designed in this period and produced by Holmegaard in Denmark, 
the gulvases had been copied some years ago 
in the course of the mid-century-hype.
These three vases are originals and were affordable flea market finds.

Time for Candlelight

Summer is over - and here´s autumn again! So the evenings get longer and candlelight appears on our tables, coffee tables and on the window sills. 
This year I collected a lot of wooden candleholders from the sixties and seventies and "upcycled" them with black acrylic lacquer. So they have a neutral color and it´s nicer to combine them, they all have different silhouettes then, but the same color.

Green

After two years of absence I am back again here.
Meanwhile I had a job as a production coordinator for merchandising products for children. It was a time-consuming and hard job, so I didn´t have much time for the blog.
Here you can see some new objects of my Etsy-shop, which I run for almost three years now. These objects are all green. By the way, in Germany the color of hope is green.
Take care!

An event with Jerome Ackerman himself signing copies of the book will take place on the 24th of October from 6 - 8 p.m.  at the Reform Gallery, 6819 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles CA 90038.

West German Pottery

West german pottery is a synonym for a very large variety of ceramic works that had been produced in the sixties and seventies of the last century in Germany. No other european country created such an amount of different shapes and glazes in ceramics. Today some of the vases from these years are hunted by collectors. Lava-glazed vases from Roth Keramik are sold for enormous sums of money on Ebay and on other forums. A helpful book for finding treasures might be "Fat Lava - West German Ceramics of the 1960s & 70s" by Mark Hill.
