    Large stoneware bowl with thick runny ash glaze

    Large stoneware bowl with thick white ash glaze by Conny Walther

    This high fired stoneware bowl with a thick glossy runny ash glaze was made by Danish potter Conny Walther (born 1931). It was made in the early 1960s. Its ash glaze was made from either burnt oak, birch or simply hay.  Throughout her career Conny signed her work in various ways. It has been painted, engraved and stamped. This particular bowl has her hand painted signature on the bottom. Conny Walther began her career at Saxbo Pottery in 1948. She was there only a year before she began studying at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen from 1949-1951. After graduating she worked at Kähler Ceramics in Næstved for a few years. In 1952 she opened her own studio in Birkerød just north of Copenhagen with her then husband, artist Bent Stubbe Teglbjerg. He would sometimes decorate her works and has likely been involved with the making of this bowl. Conny Walther has been exhibited from Tokyo over Paris to Chicago. W. 28 cm. (11”) H. 17 cm. (6,7”)

    Rare set of four fumed oak chairs with black leather by  Chris Sørensen

    This rare set of four fumed oak chairs with patinated black leather is by architect Chris Sørensen. The chairs were designed in 1955 and executed by Nils Otto Møllers company 'J. L. Møllers møbelfabrik' in Aarhus, Denmark. The model number is 74. Fumed oak or smoked oak as it is also known has in fact nothing to do with smoke or heat treatment. The original light oak wood was made darker by exposing it to ammonia fumes. The ammonia reacts with the natural tannins in the wood, which gives it a darker colour and brings out the grain pattern. The longer the wood is exposed to ammonia the darker it gets. Apparently this ageing technique was invented by accident in England hundreds of years ago, when it was noticed that oak planks stored in the horse stable would darken because of exposure to the ammonia fumes from the horse urine.

    Unique chair bench with woven canvas seat by Jørgen Gammelgaard

    This unique chair bench by Jørgen Gammelgaard (1938-1991) was made as a prototype for The Royal National Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark ca. 1983 when architects Eva and Nils Koppel decorated the new actors foyer as part of the extension at Kgs. Nytorv. It has a frame of maple with a black-lacquered back piece and a long seat with woven canvas. The idea was to create a piece of furniture for actors and ballet dancers to both sit and stretch during rehearsal- or performance-breaks. The hand-built prototype was never produced in numbers. In the late 1950s Jørgen Gammelgaard worked as a cabinetmaker with A. J. Iversen before studying at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen, where he worked under architects Poul Kjærholm and Ole Wanscher.
