The East, West German pottery era was unlike anything seen before or since, switching from the literal explosions of World War II to the explosion of creativity compensating for decades of artistic repression and responding to anger and despair with color and whimsy. At Gin-For's Odditiques, we specialize in above average, harder to find East and West German pottery from companies such as Bay Keramik, Carstens, Ceramano, Dümler & Breiden, ES Keramik, Fohr, Gramann Römhild, Marzi & Remy, Otto Keramik, Ruscha, Scheurich, Silberdistel, Ü-Keramik and many others.

Be aware that many Marei items are still incorrectly attributed to Roth (and that company is a much smaller factor than once believed).

However, they also produced a huge amount of kitsch, tourist ware and designs of questionable aesthetic value. Carstens: The Carstens Tönnieshof factory started in the 1950s and focused on a high quality product.

Production numbers were fairly high, but there were special lines and glazes done in much smaller numbers.

Most works are hand made and feature some of the earliest volcanic glazes for the era.
