Most items have red-brown clay, but some made in Austria or Australia used a different clay. Ceramano: (1959-84) Ceramano was started by Jakob Schwaderlapp, who also ran Jasba, to be a higher-end company, more like a studio than most commercial art potteries.

Quality was high and production numbers relatively low.

They also produced their share of tourist and kitsch items during their art pottery years.

The name comes from Ja (Jakob), S (Schwaderlapp), and Ba (Baumbach). Kiechle: Kiechle items include extensive hand work and are among the highest quality in this "engobe" style.

Gräflich: Graflich items are not as well known or as numerous as some of the best known companies, but they made some lovely jewel tone glazes and an interesting volcanic variant where the volcanic glaze is the underglaze, bubbling through in patches.

E-mail Us Gramann (Topferei Römhild): Gramann, also known as Töpferei Römhild was an East German company.

Kurt Tschörner may have done some of the shape designs, but I have not seen documentation on that.

Operation of the company was taken over by Otto Gerharz Jr., and the company remains in business.

The later versions can usually be distinguished by the glaze.

Page Three of W/E items for sale Marzi & Remy: Marzi & Remy items cover a full range from traditional to "mid-century", including steins (for which they remain better known than their art pottery). M&R is so variable that it can be one of the most difficult to attribute when not marked. Otto Keramik: (1964-current) Otto Gerharz was a glaze genius not yet fully appreciated.

His volcanic glazes are getting a lot of attention, but many of the non-volcanic glazes have great sutlety and complexity as well as often being more uncommon.

When fired, the clay becomes water resistant even without a glaze.

Klinker items are often hand made and hand decoration.

Bay Keramik: Started by Eduard Bay in 1933; note that it's not correct that Bay stopped art pottery production in 1971; some art production continued into the 1980s, including some striking works...some not so striking.
