Petra on pottery

featuring West German art pottery, Fat Lava and more 20th century ceramics

I am starting this blog with a post on Atelier Van Eyk.

Featured here is an ashtray by Van Eyk, just 5 cm/ 2″ high, that will fit nicely in the palm of your hand. However small, I treasure this piece, because Van Eyk pottery is very hard to come by. The atelier was founded by Dorothea and Anton van Eyk in 1940. They made wonderful pieces of art pottery in small series and one-offs until they closed in 1960. This ashtray is possibly from 1950.
