My Growing Pottery Collection

A windowsill seems to be a good place for growing a pottery collection. In some mysterious way more and more pottery has found it´s way to the collection. Only with a little help from me..........


The blue lamp base is from Danish Desiree, the candle holder from Humlebaek Keramik and the striped vase from Knabstrup

The collection is kept in different shades of brown going from chocolate brown to café au lait. I find that the steel blue pieces are a good contrast to the brown ones. Adding some life to the overall picture. The patterns ads to the dynamic of the collection with lines, squares and dots repeating themselves in different ways.

It´s a mix of Danish and German pottery.

    1. Thanks, Ray. If you are thinking about the large round one in the middle, then you are right. It´s German. As well as the two on each side of it. But the stamps are not revealing more than that.

    1. Thanks Anathalia. Actually it was the striped vase that made the base for the others when it comes to colours ;-)

  3. Det ser ut til å være særdeles gode vekstvilkår i din vinduskarm, Birgitte:-) Nydelig samling, min absolutte favoritt er nr 2 fra høyre (av de to bak lysestaken er den lengst til venstre) Vet du hvem som har laget den? Den ligner en vase mine foreldre fikk i bryllupsgave av en dansk venninne.
    De er superflinke sammen, lekre farver!!

    1. Ja, Tove, der er bestemt gode vækstbetingelser i min vindueskarm. Faktisk betydelig bedre for keramik end de sølle grønne planter der stod der før ;-). Jeg har en meget klar fornemmelse af at nr.2 fra højre er en tysker. Den er let som mange af de tyske er og glasuren er også meget tysk ligesom stemplet i bunden. Den er kun stemplet med et modelnummer, så jeg ved ikke nøjagtig hvem som har lavet den. /Birgitte
