Knud Kyhn

Knud Khyn was a an accomplished Danish painter, draughtsman and ceramic sculptor. My interest in his work lies in his evocative, superbly modelled ceramics.

He worked at Royal Copenhagen over several periods -  c1903-1910, c1924-1932 and c1936-1967.

He also worked at Herman Kähler's Pottery c1920-1924 and also at Bing & Grondahl 1908-1915 and 1933-1935.
