MEET THE ARTIST

KH Würtz

Aage and Kasper Würtz are an internationally sought-after father and son team of studio ceramists. While they are based in a provincial town of Denmark, they are becoming known far and wide for their hand-thrown, hand-glazed designs.

The Würtz style is simultaneously contemporary in design and archaic in the crafting. It’s been described as timeless but is also future-oriented in the way it supersedes traditional fine china.  Each piece is created completely by hand, using mostly ancient wheel-turning and glazing methods. Würtz tableware exhibits certain signature characteristics, such as a subtle concavity even in the flattest dinner plates, moody colorations, random flecked and mottled surface effects, and a robust weight that makes each piece a delight to hold in the hand.
