Wilhelm Kagel who had studied at the Keramische Fachschule in Höhr, took over his father's pottery, Kagel Keramische Werkstätten (1902-1988), in Partenkirchen, and developed a totally new range of hand-thrown earthenware pots, simply decorated in orange, brown, yellow, green or blue glaze, over simple, indented geometric patterns. These stylistic features confer upon his work a distinctive latter day Art and Craft feel, which he retained all his life, making subtle variations. Kagel invented a tradition of his own, which redefined the idea of tradition, in a modern spirit — 'neo-traditionalism'. His style stands out as unmistakably his. After Wilhelm Kagel Jr’s death the
studio closed 1987.
