Knud Basse (1916-1991)
Knud Basse was a Dansish Ceramicist known for his very popular small figures of animals with finely processed matte or “haresfur” glazes.
He was associated with several makers including Michael Andersen & Sons, but his best work came from his workshop in Teglkas-Ronne (on the island of Bornholm Denmark) .
Knud also produced pieces for Danish pottery Palshus.
I have had some of the delightful figurines by Knud in the first few images below:
Recently I discovered a delightful small form , out of Knud Basse’s own studio on Bornholm, which has a thorn like design and a wonderfully coloured glaze:
The “thorned” design above is similar to a very striking series of larger forms with thorns, which Knud created for Michael Andersen & Sons. These are highly valued, prized pieces to collectors.
Figurines by Knud Basse seem to pop up reasonably frequently. I found this delightful group on Lauritz.com website Denmark.
