This piece was produced by Fohr Ceramics in Germany and has a very Japanese feel to it. We found it in Germany and it has a subtle lava glazed surface. Fohr Keramik was started by Wilhelm Fohr in 1859. The inscription says: Made in Germany 421-25
One of the best known creators of Volcanic and Lava glazes is Otto Natzler, who fled to US from Austria in 1938, but it was only in the early 1960’s that volcanic glaze and the fat lava glaze became popular. Both West Germany pottery and the potters in French Vallauris embarrassed this unpredictable glaze that fitted very well into the freeform and experimental new wave in ceramics around that time.
