Seeing as my blogging output is practically nil these days - I'm really busy and Dad has taken to sending me texts - I was considering putting my blog on permanent stop. Until I went in for the usual first check of the day internet trawl reviewing all my favourite china spots, when I came across this website FULL of the most amazing 1930's German airbrush ceramic from an avid collector. SO BEAUTIFUL!! Which drives me to share with you all someone else's obsession.

Here is the background to this kind of ceramic decoration from my favourite online translator

The 20s of the last century were marked by the belief in the technical-industrial progress which progressed with 7 miles boots.

Creativity, Progressivität and tempo were mainsprings of the time, after one of the chapters darkest up to now, the First World War.

Also in the art one looked for new expression means which could do the time taste best of all widergeben, were useable rationally and even though provided the breath of the special.
Cubism, Konstruktivismus, Suprematismus, De Stijl, new professionalism, Bauhaus - the list of the concepts tied up with this short period can be extended with famous representatives of the single types: El Lissitzky, Kandinski, Theo van Doesburg, Johannes Itten or Moholy-Nagy.
In the area of the ceramic art came along, e.g., Trude Petri, Martha Katzer, to Paul Speck, Herman Gretsch and Artur Hennig a name.

The hose procedure not new in itself experienced in the relatively short phase of six to eight years a Renaissance. (About in 1926-1933).
The technology known about since 1890 spends colored ornaments on the already dry shards by means of an Aerographen (airbrush).
One worked either freehand or with the help of stencils.
Rational work and individual artistic freedom went thus on ideal Wise hand to hand.

For relatively few money stamped, so-called lower layers could get from economic depression and beginning mass unemployment the big wide (art) welt in the sitting room.
Geometrical ornaments and Dekore, on ceramics and porcelain, tin cans, wallpaper and textiles took up the use of forms of the leading artists of the past, before these were edged out after 1933, outlawed as an ungerman, of the "little litter flower" with all power in the homely (uncanny) residential worlds again.
