Thauberger’s work, formally rendered, references folk art with its bright, solid colour and simplification of common surroundings. Thauberger was a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, where he studied under ceramicist David Gilhooly. Anne Newlands observes: “The candour of Saskatchewan folk art further consolidated his appreciation of local subjects rendered with a pristine geometry animated by lively colour and decorative surfaces.”
