A little ceramic history here. I had never heard of Theodor Bogler. One of my students at William Jewell brought his work to my attention in one of their daily class assignments to send me 10 images of whatever needs to be covered. WOW!
I love the 'industrial' clean lines and the unusual bowl form of the bottom of many of the pots. These pieces are thrown, cast, cut and assembled. Many of his teapots have metal handles.
Theodor Bogler was born in Germany in 1897 and was trained in the Bauhaus traditions as an apprentice and journeyman at the state Bauhaus in Weimar. He eventually became a Benedictine monk and priest in the late 20's and early 30's, but continued his work as a ceramicist. His work is now in museums, among them MOMA in New York.
