Uwe Loellmann fires his Anagama-kiln for 7 days up to 1300°C. Twenty-five cubic metres of pine wood are burned. His vessels tell us something about our life and the powers of nature. In the present age, with its love of short-lived effects, it really requires courage to root one’s work in the ancient tradition of a craft whose basic material seems to be made for eternity. The extraordinarily expressive and symbolic qualities of clay are most strikingly evoked in his work. As an artist Loellmann’s task is to create his personal pieces…pieces which cannot be made by anyone else.
