In 1955 two brothers, Peter and Klaus Muller opened a small porcelain factory in Germany and created some of the most innovative, modern pieces from the postwar period. This porcelain vase is an extraordinary example of their introduction of futuristic, modern forms with innovative glazes. (The name "Sgrafo" refers to their special technique of incising designs into layers of porcelain.) From the Korallenform series and designed by Peter Muller. Marked with factory logo and serial number. A highly sculptural and irreverent vase that suggests a poetic moonscape. A scarce example in excellent condition. In his review in Artforum of a small show of Sgrafo and Fat Lava vases at the Centre D'Edition Contemporaine in Paris in 2010, Quinn Latimer wrote: "The vases. evoke pale Morandi paintings refashioned by an adept, acid-freak ceramicist." Organized by Nicolas Trembley who also edited an interesting exhibition catalogue, Sgrafo vs Fat Lava, describing his collection (see last photos).
