We are proud to introduce a new producer to our lineup: renowned German ceramicist Hedwig Bollhagen. Vibrant glazes and distinctive forms combined with everyday functionality—these are the qualities that define her work.
Working in her studio in the village of Marwitz, just north of Berlin, Bollhagen designed and manufactured spectacular household pottery for nearly seven decades. For much of that time, work from the so-called "Treasure of East Germany" was commonplace behind the Iron Curtain, but nearly impossible to obtain beyond the DDR.
We carry a range of iconic designs from this historic company, from the sculptural watering can designed by Bollhagen in 1955 to the Salt Jar designed in 1923 by Theodor Bogler at the Wiemar Bauhaus.
Bollhagen died in 2001, at the age of 93, but the craftsmen and women of Werkstatten Fur Keramik continue to faithfully execute her unmistakable designs.

Timeless and utilitarian. I like this one in ebony. >>>
Pallares Solsona Kitchen Knives
These Catalan knives are my favorite. I have so many! They're carbon steel, affordable, very sharp and well made. >>>
