On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 556

Läuger, who initially studied painting at the Académie Julian in Paris, used the clay body of his earthenware vessels as a substrate for vibrant colors. A technically ingenious design, this vase has a reddish brown–glazed body enclosed in an openwork frame of spiraling green bands.

Vase, Max Läuger (German, 1864–1952), Earthenware, German, Kandern
