Although the form is a well-known Otto Keramik shape, this is an unusual example both in size and glaze. The glaze is primarily black on black, matte and semi-matte, which makes the varied texture of the drip quite subtle. For a bit of color, there's a red underglaze that shows through mostly at the shoulder and neck, some gloss, some more matte. While not the bold style often associated with W. German work, the subtle control of the glaze is very much in keeping with work by Otto Gerharz. It's a quietly strong piece and has the felt bottom to be expected on Otto items.

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. And if you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.

What's "Gin-For"? Strictly medicinal purposes.
