The bold folk art sculptress and ceramicst Eva Fritz-Lindner (1933-2017) studied at the Werkkunstschule School of Applied Arts in Wiesbaden and Darmstadt, was a master student in the sculptor class by Erich Kuhn, and went on to study at Murano glass works in Venice, Italy.
From 1955 she worked as a master designer at the Staatliche Majolika-Manufaktur Karlsruhe where she designed several hundred highly regarded ceramic folk art animal sculptures and unique wall and garden works of art inspired by nature and possibly the local zoo at Karlsruhe. Owls and human family concepts were a particular specialty.
Fritz-Lindner’s largest scale works were either unique or limited to a handful of copies. The artist handpainted all of her pieces in unique and colorful fashion.
