Convex Bogler Vase Made of Red Westerwald Clay
Red Clay from the Eifel Region.
The vases are based on a design by the artist, potter and later monk, Theodor Bogler. They're thrown on the wheel with red Westerwald clay in the pottery of the 900-year-old Maria Laach Monastery in the Eifel region. The still active Benedictine abbey is situated on the southwestern shore of the Laacher See (Lake Laach), near Andernach. The red colour of the clay is due to an amount of ferrous oxide in the material; the fine pattern is made from black slip applied to the vase on the revolving wheel after the first firing. Slip is an aqueous suspension, which is a mixture of clays and other minerals such as quartz, feldspar and mica. The slip is piped or trailed onto the rotating body from a piping bag.
