Tue Poulsen Denmark
From time to time I come across beautifully formed stoneware forms from Denmark, stamped “TUE” in tiny letters underneath. Tue is the stamp of Tue Poulsen (b1939 -) a highly accomplished ceramicist and artist who has a permanent gallery and studio in Fårevejle, in the east of Zealand, Denmark.
Tue has a comprehensive website which is so refreshing (and rare it seems!) to find.
The website is jam packed full of wonderful images and information about his work. It is well worth spending some time to read it all.
His sculptural work is astonishing, but equally accomplished are his ceramic vessels – often produced in series. The first image below is of a piece I found recently at an Auction.
On Tue’s website he also has photographs of early series and works like the one above – which is great to help identify the era pieces were made in.
In addition to his own studio pottery, Poulsen has also designed pieces for Stogo (1963, 1976)), Torben Orskov (1963), lamps for Domus Danica (1970), furniture for Westnova (1973) and ceramics for Knabstrup (1973). Read more
