jane hall’s new book surveys a century of women designers who helped shape our lives, exploring the ways that their designs have shaped life not only in our homes and workplaces, but also the society at large. hall distinguishes among others hedwig bollhagen (*1907 †2001), who was known primarily for her simple, yet timeless ceramics for everyday use. she skillfully managed to bridge the difficult gap between regional crafts traditions and bauhaus aesthetics (i.e. celebrated bauhaus-adherents theodor bogler & werner burri). bollhagen founded the hb workshop for ceramics in marwitz, just northeast of berlin, in 1934. in 1997 she received the order of merit from the federale republic of germany.
