Danish ceramist Bodil Manz graduated from the School of Arts and Craft in Copenhagen, went on to study at Escuela de Disneno y Artesanias and Berkeley University in California. She is known predominantly for her ultra-thin, translucent eggshell porcelain in cylindrical forms decorated with bold, geometric abstractions. Her work is included in many important museum collections and has amply exhibited internationally. In her own words:
“Focusing and concentrating on a single object such as a sphere, a square, a cylinder, a cup, fundamentally something quite ordinary, the stuff of everyday life, [seems] indeed almost banal. But during the process we discovered fresh aspects, and suddenly ‘the ordinary’ became a new experience.”
