Bjorn Wiinblad Object Vase

By: Sanjeevkumar

One of the most famish artist in the line of Danish potteryis probably . He is known worldwide and has enjoyed a career thathas spanned more than 60 years. His talents aren't limited to pottery andceramics however; his art has been displayed on book covers, glass, and amyriad of other creative mediums. His artistic creativity in addition to hisversatility combined makes him rather impossible to classify. He is much like ajack-of-all-trades within the artistic community and yet remains wildly popular.

Danish pottery, like Bjorn Wiinblad has many facets. Much ofthe pottery of Denmark matches the modernistic flare of the furniture that iscreated here as well. The furniture, the art, they all form a symbioticrelationship within the home and most artists of the area are designing theirwares for the local buying public. Not that they don't welcome tourists, butmost tourists offer a one-time purchase. The local public is the bread andbutter for these people and they are well aware of it. It only makes sense thattheir designs would reflect the local culture and the idea that less is indeedsometimes more.

Quirky Danish designer, was known as the 'designer's designer'. His work is diverse andencompasses studio art pottery, glass, silver, posters and costume design. Hewas the Rosenthal Porcelain company's chief designer for 35 years but much ofhis early work was produced by the Danish company Nymolle. We are just startingto collect Wiinblad pieces so pretty much any porcelain/ceramic piece will doas well as the many vintage posters and hand-signed prints, especially theblack and white line-drawn type scenes as shown to the left.

In one of the most talked about installations,in BjornWiinblad's The Gossips he has created another whimsical masterpiece. The foursmooth bronze sculptures of young ladies obviously in the middle of idlechatter, or just whirling their heads away from it, exudes a swirling motion, acertain arrogance with the figures' noses turned up and away from each other.Please purchase on online
