So, let me tell you about this handsome gentleman on this fine September 27th, which happens to be his birthday.

Lothar von Richthofen was said to be a “delicate child”, but as most fragile things in this world, he grew into a complete badass. At the break out of WWI, he served his country at the frontier as a horseman. Like most horsemen, he went through a lot of bullshit. Like, a lot of bullshit. Besides starvation and disease, our brave Lothar endured endless rainy nights on horseback, having nothing but his sweet sister Ilse’s letter to comfort him - before they melted away with the water, of course.

Let’s not forget that, alongside all that, there were hundreds of enemy soldiers at every corner wanting nothing more than to shoot a German. Tough times, ladies and gents, tough times.

Thankfully, once his brother Manfred von Ricthofen (yes, the Red Baron) showed him how promising aerial combat could be, Lothar abandoned the filthy and bloody land for a much cleaner (yet just as bloody) environment. He then became a proud Luftwaffe pilot!

 It is nearly impossible to speak about one brother without mentioning the other; their bond is, sincerely, unique. As it is described by their mother in her War Diary, “Lothar loved Manfred more than himself”. 

Lothar is often depicted as the “envious brother”, which is more than an unfair assumption! As Kunigunde von Ricthofen’s description of her sons goes on, she mentions how “he knew no envy” and how glad he was about that. His solemn mantra was “Manfred is always right”.

After Manfred’s tragic death in April 1918, Lothar found himself rather lost. He married in June in 1919 as had children years later. Regardless, our hero was showing signs of depression and in 1922, a few weeks after his divorce (note that around that time divorces were still rather rare) he died in an aerial accident given to an engine fail.

Regardless of an unfair end, I think we should all keep Lothar von Richthofen in mind – a man who, like so few of us, dedicated his life to his brother in blind loyalty. Give worth to your sibling; there is no one else like him/her.

Michael Boroniec: Spatial Spirals, 2013

What began with teapots and a single spiral, has evolved into a series of vases that vary in form, degree of expansion, and number of coils. Each vessel is wheel thrown then deconstructed. This process reveals aspects of the vase that most rarely encounter. Within the walls, maker’s marks become evident and contribute to the texture. The resultant ribbon effect, reminiscent of a wheel trimming, lends fragility, elegance, and motion to a medium generally perceived as hard and heavy. This emphasizes a resistance of gravity, allowing negative space to unravel and become part of the form. The result is a body of sculptural objects, resembling and born of functional vessels.
