Sonngard Marcks – Pictorial Worlds in Ceramics
Blossoms, leaves, fruit, vegetables and insects, everything recorded exactly, reproduced impressively and applied in perfection to her faience ceramics. Sonngard Marcks is one of the virtuosos of contemporary German ceramics. Trained at the Burg Giebichenstein school of industrial design (today Halle's University of Art) her work draw attention already to GDR times, but she gathered her great recognition after the political change. Marcks designes and produces pitchers, cups, plates, platters, vases, bowls, boxes, candlesticks - blending painting and form into perfect unity.
The exhibition of the Internationales Keramik-Museum Weiden not only shows a selection of ceramics of the versatile artist, but also some of her sketchbooks, which provide insight into her great art of drawing.
