“I gradually became aware that each piece of ceramic was to be a canvas for the fire.” – Gerhild Tschachler-Nagy

Excerpt from Women and Ceramics: Gendered Vessels by Moira Vincentelli

p. 237 “From Austria, Gerhild Tschachler-Nagy  uses simple salt-fired kilns that she constructs herself to develop her handbuilt pots and sculptures whose finely burnished surfaces are ‘painted’ and stained by the action of the fire.”
