Intro
The ceramic works by Doris Bank, who passed away in 2019, are perfectly shaped objects of table culture, all of which have been created with infinite dedication, patience, and passion in perfect craftsmanship. There are various small series, simple, factual, puristic, yet lively and diverse with an elegant and at the same time archaic charisma - constantly further developed, never resting, full of creativity, in absolutely great craftsmanship, but ahead of your time, and they touch.

About the artist
Doris Bank (1964-2019) is among the most significant representatives of artistic utilitarian ceramics. Her works in porcelain and colourful stoneware are distinguished by a virtuoso play of form and surface. The tactile textures lend her small series a lively, elegant, and at once archaic effect. In this new monograph, her life’s work is appreciated in-depth for the very first time. The ceramic works by Doris Bank are perfectly formed objects, delicate vessels of well-balanced beauty and subtlety. Striking features are the reduced language of forms, the considered choice of colour, and extreme thinness of the vessel walls. Each piece is part of a series yet is a one-off – modeled, pressed and formed, folded or cut, glazed and fired all by hand.
