Zeuthen Ceramics

Zeuthen Pottery Denmark

Zeuthen Keramik was founded in 1946 at Gentofte, near Copenhagen, by Normann Zeuthen. It traded under the named Zeuthen Keramik from 1948. The workshop employed around 10-15 people at its peak. Some of the known potters who spent some time there in the apprenticeship system in its early years were Ady Kroyer and Birte Vedel Howard who both went on to have successful careers as potters in Denmark.

Zeuthen pottery has become well known for its functional and domestic works in red clay decorated with motifs of flowers, stars, dots and other decorative motifs in white raised glaze or slip trailed glaze on the unglazed smooth red clay. Going by the amount of Zeuthen work still available online and in antique stores their output was very high….and very popular to this day.

Pieces from Zuethen are simply signed “Zuethen Denmark” in blue to the base. Sometimes you might find a printed paper label as well.

I haven’t been able to find a date for when the pottery ceased operating – any help with this appreciated.

Edith Nielsen was the primary designer at Zeuthen responsible for this distinctive style which became the Zeuthen style.
