Thomas Bohle is one of Europe's most distinguished contemporary potters. His double walled forms are concise and technically virtuosic. Majestic vessels span 70 centimetres in diameter; glazes and profiles varying in scale for this exhibition.

About

In his studio in Dornbirn, Austria, Thomas Bohle uses clay, water, glass, metal oxides and fire to create the double-walled thrown pieces for which he has gained an international following. Bohle's vessels are concise and technically virtuosic; his glazes controlled and schooled. Though the surfaces he explores have little of the concern for pitted textures and scratched marks that the work produced by Hans Coper and Lucie Rie did, his exacting concern about form does recall their commitment to sculptural volume and line. His approach is distinctly different from those ceramists who allow the soft clay a voice right through from throwing, or hand work, to final firing. Bohle's pieces express his mastery and his discipline.  Andy Christian (Ceramic Review 276)
