• Slim Tapered Vase/ Black Glaze

Slim Tapered Vase
Black Glaze



A slim tapered vase glazed in black, made and designed in Denmark by K H Würtz. 

This tapered vase is glazed in a rich black, typical of the Danish ceramic studio, with matte grey areas broken up by glassy areas of pitch-black accentuated by flashes of bright, cobalt blue. 

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 recognizable 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.
