Geometry in Danish Pottery - Michael Anderson & Son

Danish pottery has a long tradition of being inspired by classic Japanese and Chinese pottery. Saxbo is a great example of this tradition. The clean minimalistic expression that many people connect with Danish Modern has, when we are talking pottery, its roots in this tradition. Take for example Henning Koppels Form 24 for Bing and Grondahl. But in the beginning of the 1960s the minimalism slowly turns over to become more geometric and by the 1970s it is very clear that a great deal of potters detach themselves from the tradition.

For example at Michael Andersen & Sons factory at Bornholm.


It is still clean and minimalistic but far more geometrical. These are my favorite vases right now. If I really have to make a choice.......
