Education and Research Gallery for Otto, P-Keramik, and Roth
Otto

Otto Gerharz was a true master of glaze chemistry. This form is also found (more often) in a flipped version (like an upside down version of the same shape).  Examples of the other version can be seen among the items currently for sale.


P Keramik


I originally attributed this shape to ES Keramik because of the glaze, but examples have been found with a P Keramik label.  So far, nothing about the company has come to light.






Not Roth but Marei



Not Roth but Marei Shape 2003

This series of sculptural vases was a mystery for quite some time, but glaze and bottom comparisons now fairly clearly place them with Roth.  They are heavier than the Ü Keramik versions and have red clay.



Otto



This shows the typical felt-covered bottom on Otto Keramik items.

P Keramik



There are several aspects about this bottom that are different from those most commonly found.  Aside from not having a number, the bottom is more refined. Whether that indicates a different company also made this shape or simply represents some change within P Keramik is unknown.

Otto



Once in a while, Otto items are found without the felt, and this flat, white bottom is found on almost all Otto items (though not quite all are flat). I strongly suggest that no one bother removing the felt.  It doesn't really hurt the value, but it's really a pain in the butt to achieve for no worthwhile result.





Based on catalog pages, many items once attributed to Roth have been reattributed to Marei.  Thanks to Kevin James Graham for working to make this information widely available to collectors.

I will leave these items in the Roth section for now so people can see  the change.

Please take the time to let us know what you think about the site, the look, the language, photos, items, prices, etc. If you have any questions, comments, or good ideas for conversation, feel free to contact us. There should be e-mail links on every page, and the actual address is ginfor@earthlink.net  

Guarantee: We have a simple, "If you aren't happy, we aren't happy" policy.  If you open a package and suddenly wonder why you bought it in the first place, you can return it for a full refund of your purchase price and the shipping one way.  Your only risk is the cost to ship it back to us. If it turns out that we made a mistake, then we pay the shipping both ways. I won't say "no questions asked" because we will ask so we'll know how to make fewer mistakes.

Payment terms:  We try not to be overly picky about the details.  If we can put it in the bank and pay some bills without any undo fuss, then we'll probably take it.  We're quite happy to take checks and money orders, and we're signed up with Paypal, which is the easiest route if you want to pay by credit card.  If you have some other method in mind, get in touch, and we'll see what we can work out.  Monopoly money, anything you may have printed in the basement, and chickens are right out.
