American Dorothy Hafner is a ceramic and glass artist who first came to prominence in the 1980s, when she was contracted by the German Rosenthal factory to create work for the discerning collector who liked to set a striking table.
One of Hafner's key designs of this period was the "Flash" series, which contrasted a black and white geometric pattern cluster with colorful circular and ovular elements enamelled in bright hues such as turquoise, green, lavender, ocher, mauve, orange, etc.
We have a unique collaborative relationship with Dorothy Hafner and gallerist Leslie Ferrin of Massachusetts. Ferrin is selling the one of a kind, hand-built artworks; Jill Fenichell, Inc. is selling the original artist's proofs and Hafner's own samples of work created for Rosenthal.
