In 2004 skilled ceramicist Aage Würtz joined forces with his son, Kasper, and founded KH Würtz in their hometown of Horsens. As proud ceramicists, the duo wished to explore the possibilities of materials using ancient wheel-turning and glazing methods.
While combining traditional ceramic skills with their passion for experimentation, KH Würtz developed a unique aesthetic in subtle hues which was quickly noticed by one of Copenhagen’s top chefs, René Redzepi, who asked KH Würtz to develop the tableware for Noma, his experimental New Nordic restaurant, in 2004 since then, the duo has not looked back and, today, Kasper and Aage sell their characteristic glazed ceramics around the world. Their tableware has become synonymous with the aesthetic of New Nordic cuisine as the tableware of choice for Scandinavia’s top restaurants, including Copenhagen’s only three-starred Michelin restaurants: Noma and Geranium.
Still working at the wheel in their Horsens studio, Aage and Kasper continue to experiment with autonomous glazing processes to create new ceramic variations with unique colourations, random flecked surfaces and robust heft. Whether they are producing everyday tableware series or unique ceramic pieces, experimentation, joy and respect for ceramic craftsmanship remain at the heart of KH Würtz’s production.
