His volcanic glazes are getting a lot of attention, but many of the non-volcanic glazes have great sutlety and complexity as well as often being more uncommon. Kurt Tschörner may have done some of the shape designs, but I have not seen documentation on that. Operation of the company was taken over by Otto Gerharz Jr., and the company remains in business. In addition to new forms and glazes, they have also released contemporary versions of some older glazes, generally less refined than the originals, and they have been reproducing the Ruscha bull and some other early shapes for several years. The later versions can usually be distinguished by the glaze. E-mail Us
On December 1, 1989, the People's Chamber removed the section of the East German Constitution granting the SED a monopoly of power—thus ending Communist rule in East Germany. Before the month was out, the SED transformed from a Leninist cadre party into a democratic socialist party, renaming itself first to Socialist Unity Party — Party of Democratic Socialism and later in the same year, to Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS). Hence, the party's subsequent leaders were no more leaders of East Germany than the leaders of other parties.
History: Founded in 1909 in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, Audi is definitely one of the most important companies that designs, engineers, produces, markets and distributes vehicles. The company was named after its founder’s surname – August Horch – which in German means “listen”. Later on, in July 1909, Audi Automobilwerke was set up. Back in 1932, the company merged with Horch, DKW and Wanderer in order to form Auto Union UG. Now, this event explains the four interlinked rings of the Audi logo. Since 1966, the company has been part of Volkswagen Group.
