Heidenreich, Fritz

GER
*1895 - †1966

Fritz Heidenreich was a ceramist and sculptor. He was a Rosenthal employee from 1919 to 1960, and from 1946 onwards the head of the art department in Selb. His artistic activities did not merely end with sculpting wildlife or birds in porcelain - he also tried to find contemporary ways of expressing his sense of forms. The most excellent proof of his works for Rosenthal may be the group of fish »Scalare« and also the legendary »Orchideenvase« which was dubbed »Pregnant Luise«.
