Globe Vase #2
Black Glaze



A black, globe-shaped vase designed and made in Denmark by K H Würtz. 

This vessel by K H Wurtz is almost entirely spherical. The slight foot grounds its monumental stature and its delicate lip gives the vessel with a quiet elegance.

This is the larger of a similar vase of the same glaze and shape. This smaller vase can be found here

This piece is glazed in a rich black. Areas of matt and shininess, as well as flashes of bright blue, disrupt the uniformity of its shape and imbues the vessel with an organic, almost 'found' quality. 

Kasper Würtz runs a ceramicists studio based near Horsens in eastern Jutland, Denmark. Known internationally for their hand-thrown and hand-glazed ceramics they have produced bespoke collections for distinguished fine dining restaurants around the world. Würtz crockery can be found at Geranium and Noma in Denmark, Törst, and Luksus in the US and L’Enclume and The Ledbury in the UK.

Ceramics by Würtz are usually made of stoneware, occasionally of porcelain. Their aesthetics are inspired by both Nordic utilitarian crafts and 20th century British studio pottery; their practice involves traditional wheel-turning and glazing methods.

The visual language developed by Wurtz is recognisable in a number of features such as the assured inner-outer ratio of every piece, the subtle concavity even in the flattest plates and the glazed surface in which matt and shine areas alternate harmoniously.
