Gerd Bogelund, Royal Copenhagen

Gerd Bogelund, Large Bowl, Royal Copenhagen

Gerd Bogelund (1923-1987)

Gerd worked at Royal Copenhagen while studying until 1942, then briefly worked at Saxbo before returning to Royal Copenhagen in 1946 as an Artist in Residence for many years. Her work is highly sought after by collectors, but hard to find here in Australia.

I was fortunate enough to find the pieces in the first two images a few years ago, but it is only the second time I have come across the work of this designer in about 10 years.

She is best known for her beautifully and intricately patterned stoneware pieces at Royal Copenhagen, typical of the examples below, but did also design some equally impressive porcelain pieces – often with blue or celadon glazes.

If you want to see more, FreeformsUSA, New York, always have a great selection of work by Gerd on their website, and her work often comes up in the leading auction houses in Europe.
