Johannes Nagel

He learned the potter’s craft from Kinya Ishikawa in Canada, and he studied art with Antje Scharfe, Karl Fulle and Martin Neubert in Halle, where Johannes Nagel has had a workshop since 2008. He currently teaches ceramics at Burg Giebichenstein. His vessels are more rhetorical figures than objects for practical use. Johannes Nagel is bold enough to elevate the tradition-laden theme of the vessel to a program in its own right. And he is uncompromising enough to narrow this theme to the exemplary vessel form of the vase. But when he does so, he probably isn’t thinking about flowers.
