A beautiful stoneware vase made by Patrick Nordstrom in his own studio in Islev, Denmark in 1922. It has a semi-glossy brown crystalline glaze.
Patrick Nordström (1870 – 1922) was born in Sweden but left in 1902 to establish his own studio in Denmark. In 1911 he was appointed as artistic director at Royal Copenhagen and he stayed until 1922, producing distinctive multicolored glazed stoneware. When he left, he established a new independent studio. His brilliant ceramics are forerunners in the mid-century biomorphism, and far from more traditional ceramics produced at that time.
