Helga Ritsch
Conical vessel (2018)

Single piece, porcelain, white, glazed

Loading... incl. taxes
Gift wrapping:


The transparent high-gloss glaze across the inside of this broad conical vessel creates a play of light, which perpetually changes depending on where the piece is placed. As part of the artist’s archive, it retains its timelessness in its simplicity, thrown from bright white porcelain with a subtly textured appearance on the underside.


Skilfully crafted entirely by Helga’s hands on the potter’s wheel, each piece is unique, without any possibility of replication. This conical vessel gains its lasting strength during oxidation firing at 1,340°.

Resting on a narrow base, like many of the artist’s pieces, it also features a tiny red thread stitched horizontally along the rim. This adds a tactile element that stands out against the glossy finish of the porcelain.

The vessel bears the artist’s signature and stamp, and is created at her atelier, located within her 400-year-old home in Soazza, a village of just over 300 inhabitants nestled in the Swiss mountains.

The vessel is dishwasher safe. However, once you hold your piece in your hands, you will probably prefer to care for it personally. We recommend handwashing it gently with a soft sponge and thoroughly drying it. Do not wash it with any cleansing agents, and avoid using abrasive sponges. It must not be directly exposed to temperature shocks, whether from a flame, conventional oven, microwave, induction cooktop, freezer, refrigerator or other source of heat or cold. Avoid any shocks or friction. If you care for it, it will last a lifetime and beyond, unless it is accidentally dropped or shattered. Over time, this unglazed piece may develop a distinct patina, a natural transformation influenced by its purpose and usage. Evolving at its own unhurried pace, this process enriches your piece, rendering it truly one of a kind.

Every porcelain object is meticulously packaged to ensure its safe delivery. In the rare event of any cracks occurring during shipping, please contact us within a week of delivery.
