NEW OBJECT ON LONG-TERM LOAN FOR DORNBURG PROJECT
The couple Barbara and Axel Weinhold from Weimar have given an important exhibit for the project of reorganizing the former Bauhaus Pottery to become a museum. It is a pot for jam, 20cm high with drawings carved by Gerhard Marcks. The vessel might belong to the first items that were fired by the Bauhaus students sent to Dornburg. The following facts speak for this assumption: adhering to the traditional shape and the use of the traditional initiation glaze (german: Anwurfglasur). There are new elements as well: the carved décor looking like a comic and the painted glaze (german: Glasurmalerei) on the figures done with a brush. Just recently a similar piece was given to the Klassik Foundation in Weimar. So far they have been the only renowned items of this kind from the beginning of the Dornburg Bauhaus Pottery.
