Concept

The "Treppenschliffschale" (staircut bowl), in its clarity and harmony of circle and rectangular shapes, is a masterpiece of design and execution. The steps are cut out of the massive raw glass one by one and polished by hand to save their crispness. The piece was presented at an important exhibition of the "Deutsche Werkbund" at Cologne in 1914.
