Anyone know this potter?

Post  john pitt on Wed Sep 22, 2010 2:51 pm

This is a beautiful oval pot, bought in Munich in 1996, so I'm told,
I aquired it recently and would like to know who made it,
Initials looks like a GW, the chop looks to incorporate part of the Belgium lion?
Thanks .

Hello John,

Can't help you with the signature, but it would be great if you could post a picture of the entire piece. Question Very Happy

Thanks!

Hi,

this is the signature of Gabriele Wirth. She was quite famous in Germany in the 80s/90s and then stopped making pots, so her pots are quite rare and sought after. Unfortunately I don't have much more information on her, since this was before the internet (and my occupation with bonsai), but I also love her pots, perhaps somebody else would have more information to share?

Best regards,
Stefan

Thanks very much Stefan, at least now I have a name.

Yes Irene, it's very nice, I fell in love as soon as I saw it, and was fortunate to be able to buy it.
