Gerald Weigel INTRODUCTION

    Gerald Weigel, born in 1925, grew up in Thuringen where, like his ancestors, he learnt the trade of porcelain-making. He moved to H_hr Grenzhausen in 1947, working as a porcelain model-maker, first in a factory and ,from 1954, in the workshop of Eifriede Ballzar-Kopp. In 1961,Gotlind and Gerald Weigel set up a joint workshop in Mainz, Until 1964, Gerald also worked at the Romanesque-Germanic National Museum as a restorer. In the early years they followed a particular working relationship. Gotlind threw and Gerald glazed and fired in the electric kiln. The production consisted of tableware and individual pieces in stoneware. From the beginning, the thrown form was frequently altered to an oval cross-section or used as the basis for assembled vessels. Clearly defined examples are the narrow-necked vases resembling pilgrim bottles. As well as zinc-barium glazes in yellow, blue and beige colors, the Weigels also used a soft, Gray pebble glaze and dark overglaze.
