“Green budgerigar escaped on Tuesday. Any sightings please send to Fam. R. Bucher, Saumstr. 50, Zch. 3.”
Found in the swiss newspaper “Die Tat” from 1954.
This is in Cornelia Troeschs kitchen where we drank green tea and I admired her collection of teecups and kettles.
This little red jug on the bottom photo is a traditionaly swiss piece of ceramics from Cornelia’s grandparents. On the photo bellow you can see the technic called „Hörnlimalerei“ used in Switzerland.
At the top of the shelf on the kitchen shelf you can see earthware pots made in the Elsass. They are burnt in woodstoves at a very high temperature. They where used to preserve things in and you can find them frequently in thriftstores.
You can look at the first part of this series here.
I went to visit the ceramicists Cornelia Troesch in her beautiful studio at Gloriastrasse in Zurich. We chated about swiss ceramics and she showed me some of her recent pieces.
I will be doing a second post next week where we will take a look into her kitchen. As you can imagine, she has many nice pieces to drink tea from.
This is one of my favorite books to work with and has a huge collection of flowers. Already graphicly reduced. It also has a great intruduction at the front on how to use diagrammed flowers for graphic design. For my latest illustration for Bildwurf I chose the Hawkweed and you can see my last week flower bouqet inspired the colores I chose.
I am working on some woodcuts at the moment and will be posting more about them. Here are some photos I took at the carpenter’s, from whom I bought the lime wood. Lime wood is lovely to carve as it is quite soft and, as I am planing on carving prints with delicate lines, this wood is perfect for it.
