Notes Gottfried Bockelmann, a master turner and former head and founder of the turning department at the School of Art and Craft in Hildesheim, Germany, displays superb design ability and manipulation of the lathe in his work. Here he has designed and created an attractive jar in a unique oval form. The unusual combination of materials adds to the visual impact of this complex work.
