The "Sands and Pearl" collection


In his pottery of the Miroir aux PrÍles (Horsetail Mirror), Franz Fenris G. invents both common wares and pomp vessels by re-interpreting the shapes and the decorative ornaments of the Renaissance. These original pieces are made of wheel-thrown, hand-modelled or moulded, glazed or unglazed stoneware. The decoration is either painted with coloured slip or oxides applied with the help of a thin brush (in the 2005 collection), or inlaid by filling in with a darker slip depressed motifs made by carving or stamping the soft clay (from 2006 onward). The motifs show arabesques, Moresque, basket-weave knotwork and grotesques, which are inspired from the Italian Quattrocento and the French and German sixteenth century decorative arts. From 2010 on, the inlay was made in white porcelain on a black stoneware background as well. Unless specified otherwise (earthenware), the white pieces were fired at 1260įC in a reducing atmosphere, the black stoneware at 1130įC.
