CONTACT US HERE ABOUT THIS ITEM (BY NAME).
This rare and eccentric double-trumpet style vase from ROTH KERAMIK features an asymmetrical form covered in a flowing glaze of brown, tan, and goldenrod. It was very likely designed by Dorothea Roth in the early 1970s and exhibits many of the earmarks of studio pottery.
ROTH KERAMIK was founded in the very early 1970s by Edmund and Dorothea Roth in the tiny municipality of Ebernhahn, in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. ROTH was quite small compared to the big names in West German art pottery manufacture. It only employed about 20 people in its heyday, and its output was naturally tiny measured against that of giants like Scheurich or Carstens. Some fraction of ROTH KERAMIK's work appears to have been more akin to studio pottery than to the more commonly available form-molded pieces, its production involving significant handwork. Today the company make rather utilitarian tableware.
