A New Shipment from Europe – part IX

Hegnetslund Danish Modernist Bowl with Egg Yolk Glazing (LEO Design)

While I don’t know much about this bowl, I do know that I like it.  The contrast of a shiny “eggy” amber interior against the flat, earthy, gunmetal exterior makes for a handsome presentation.  The hand-impressed ovals of criss-crossing add a folk art flavoring.  And the variegated, lightly-crazed interior glaze reminds me of a Van Gogh sun—beaming above a freshly-mown field.  It was made by Hegnetslund in Denmark in the 1960’s or 1970’s.   And that’s all I know (so far)!

More newly-acquired European art pottery tomorrow.
