Germany’s Golem Architectural Ceramics

Do you need enormous bricks to replace broken ones in your castle? How about tiles for a pyramid? Golem can make them for you! This German pottery is amazing and I am so glad I learned about it. The setting is also beautiful…a former farm near Berlin. The company makes Art Nouveau tiles using the cuenca or tubelining technique, too. I posted about this technique earlier and you can read about it here. (For Golem’s  catalogue click here.) A golem is a creature from Jewish folklore.  According to Wikipedia, it is “an animated anthropomorphic being, created entirely from inanimate matter.” It also states that “the word golem occurs once in the Bible in Psalm 139:16, which uses the word גלמי, meaning “my unshaped form.”
