Dimensions: 10.5 inches high and 10.5 inches width Handmade / handarbeit and hand glazed, few survive About the artist: The bold Folk Art sculptress and ceramist Eva Fritz-Lindner (1933-2017) studied at the Werkkunstschule Wiesbaden and Darmstadt and was a master student in the sculptor class by Erich Kuhn. From 1955 she worked as a master designer at the Staatliche Majolika-Manufaktur Karlsruhe where she created and designed several hundred highly regarded ceramic Folk Art animal sculptures and unique wall and garden works of art inspired by nature and possibly the local zoo at Karlsruhe. Owls and family concepts were a particular specialty. During this time she created designs for building and garden ceramics, vessels and small sculptures. Since 1964, the sculptress worked as a freelance artist in her own studio in Karlsruhe-Durlach. The artist designed important works in the field of building ceramics, including wall designs in mosaic, in Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden, Schwäbisch Gmünd and Göppingen. Of particular note, she created enormous scale owl sculptures for the palace gardens in Karlsruhe in 1967 (see photo). In 1962, Eva Fritz-Lindner was awarded the silver medal at the Prague International Ceramic Exhibition. The artists' ceramics are owned and located in the Hetjens-Museum Düsseldorf, in the Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art in Frechen, in the Württemberg State Museum Stuttgart, in the Badenisches Landesmuseum Karlsruhe, in the Museum of Applied Art in Cologne and in the Museo National de Cerámica Valencia. In addition numerous private collections both in Europe and the United States covet her art. Most of her larger sculptures were likely produced in less than 100 copies Based Upon research and all were hand painted individually by this artist ensuring each work of art was indeed unique. Largest scale works like these were either unique or limited to a handful of copies. Her exhibition catalogs include Karlsruher Majolika, Badisches Landesmuseum 1979, p. 312, no. 504 with fig. (Here height 48 cm); M. Bachmayer , P. Schmitt, Karlsruhe Majolica 1901 to 2001, 100 years of 20th century ceramic art, Karlsruhe 2001, p. 173, catalog L 94.f, im Museum für zeitgenössische keramische Kunst Frechen, im Württembergischen Landesmuseum Stuttgart, im Badischen Landesmuseum Karlsruhe, im Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln und im Museo National de Cerámica Valencia.
