Margarete Heymann

Heymann refused to follow the majority of her female peers into the Bauhaus’s weaving workshop. She created angular objects, composed of triangles and circles and spangled with constructivist patterns and colorful glazes. Heymann and her husband went on to establish a workshop but Heymann was forced to sell the company in 1934. The European political conflict stirred, and because Heymann was a Jewish she went to England to escape persecution. She established a new company, Greta pottery, and devoted her days to painting. I love her work and I like all of the colors that she uses. Also the designs she has.
