Thomas Bohle is especially interested in double-walled vessels
in which the strongly differing exterior and interior shapes form
a deliberate contrast. This is also frequently echoed in a contrast
of colour. The construction of the forms is often conceived in such
a way that the glaze runs down the vertical wall forming glaze droplets
on the lower edge. Fired in a open reduction flame, the oxblood
and the celadon glazes reveal their true beauty.
Thomas Bohle`s wealth of imagination in regard to form and perfect
technical implementation hits the nerve of our times with their
proximity distinguished modern design. In addition to technical,
material-related formal and aesthetic qualities his work tends towards
conceptional clarity in the field of ceramics creativity.
With his work, he proves that the ceramic vessel is a topicality
as a means of artistic expression.
