HB-Ritz - Underglaze painting from the HB-Werkstätten für Keramik
The original HB decor is applied with black engobe on the pure pottery shards, refined by sgraffito technique and glazed transparently. It creates patterns with high recognition value, which reveal the extraordinary talent of Hedwig Bollhagen. Her Ritz decors generate tension on the surface. They support the shape, but sometimes they are also unbalanced and vibrate with an unexpected, asymmetrical course. Hedwig Bollhagen has been developing the Ritz decors since the 1930s.
