  • Bowls - different sizes and different clays, all wheelthrown in stoneware. Today I did not work that much - but I finished a client's commission - because it was so beautiful to look out of the studio window: It was snowing the whole day and now the houses and streets are white and wonderful. I do not like winter very much but a scene like today makes me happy. And it was funny, too, because yesterday I finished a book called 'Schnee' (snow) by Orhan Pamuk - and today so much snow!#beauty #ceramics #bowl #snow #keramik #pottery #töpferei #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #scene #keramik #art #form #töpferei #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #steinzeug #japan #korea #craft

  • Love this place where I live and work when I am not in Zurich and I already wrote about before: It is a beautiful small village in the South of Switzerland, and there is the old house I am renovating. Actually it is impossible to work there at the moment because - as you can see on the photo - winter arrived, so it is cold in the house because there is no heating. I am working on it until the next winter.....But for photoshootings it is a very good place also in winter - some of the photos I posted recently have been taken there. It is a very quiet and romantic space surrounded by wonderful landscape and very nice people live in the village. There they do not speak German but Italian - and it brings back some memories from my childhood because my father was born in Italy. He died when I was in my twenties and he unfortunately never saw my pottery development. Well, when you travel through Switzerland you maybe stop by - the village is called Soazza and it is near Bellinzona. Does anyone of you know it? #l...

  • Finally it is Friday! I had a very busy week and now I am happy to relax. Well, when I looked around I found this place for my porcelain bowls - a great weekend to everybody. Today, in Zurich it was most of the time a grey day with snow.....let's see how it will be tomorrow. #porcelain #ceramics #tableware #white #pottery #teabowl #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #teeschale #geschirr #breakfast #töpferei #keramik #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #porzellan #japan #korea #craft

  • And black porcelain again - still working with the new material and trying it out in different sizes and forms. Soon I will know if it works the way I want: Sometimes the work as a potter seems hard for me but sometimes it is the best of all my professions I ever had! #porcelain #ceramics #tableware #black #pottery #teabowl #clay #stoneware #making #handmade #stilllife #teeschale #geschirr #breakfast #form #keramik #minimal #simple #perfect #contemporaryart #zurich #switzerland #architecture #style #interior #glaze #töpferei #japan #korea #craft

  • Vase under the oven in the very old house: I made a lot of this kind of vases because I love the shape. This is the only one I hold for me, coated with a green craquele celaden glaze.

  • A part of my porcelain tableware collection: White and wheelthrown, for breakfast or simply tea or coffee or a small dinner as well. I am waiting for the black pieces that are trimmed now (Yes! Yesterday I did it - finally in a warm studio...) - and I am very very curious about the result... I wish a wonderful Sunday to everybody - from Zurich to wherever you are!

  • From tomorrow on it is going to be warm again in my studio- so I will be there from 11-15 h. Everyone is warmly welcomed to look around and will be offered a cup of tea. I also drank one today out of one of my very delicate, transluscent and handthrown (of course) teacups! With it I treated myself to a japanese candy. Immediately all my memories from my wonderful trip to Japan came back...How beautiful it was! I would like to visit this country again. Well, there is much to come this year, who knows...

  • Winter in Zurich. Cold and snowy. And: The radiator at my studio is damaged since the beginning of this week which sadly led to an ice-cold workplace. Therefore the circumstances stopped me from doing my work at the potter's wheel as I originally planned. Today I waited for the technician...I have so much work to do - and now this happened.....Well, some things just happen and you can't change them. The picture above shows my porcelain work in the color black which are currently waiting for their firing. I really hope they turn out well! At my last try their shape didn't quiet turned out as desired so I didn't like them! Now I adjusted some things and am really eager to know how they are going to turn out!
