From terrifying monsters to irresistible beauties, man has devised all sorts of creatures that might arise from lakes or oceans. In Ludig Tischler’s world, it was a small mermaid in 1899 that made the breakthrough – for herself and the porcelain model maker alike. Seated astride a dolphin, she pierces the crests of the wave to adorn our tables. Growing from a flat relief into a fully formed sculpture, the idyllic ocean setting with the figure of the naked maiden comes to dominate the egg-shaped vase while being in complete harmony with the vessel's shape.
