"I enjoy the refinement that lies in working with traditional principals, using the classical shape, which is a wide term, and within that field trying to add something new."

Japanese ceramic traditions

After an extended stay in Japan, where Snorre Læssøe Stephensen studied Japanese art and Japanese ceramic traditions, it would become Snorre himself who designed for Royal Copenhagen and later became head of the Danish Design School department of ceramics.

ABOUT DESIGNER

Snorre Læssøe Stephensen

Porcelain and clay has been Snorre Læssøe Stephensen’s passion for more than half a century, and his techniques and inspiration reach back thousands of years to the ancient Japanese ceramic tradition. Nevertheless, his design is categorically modern with a strong character, whilst remaining simple and delicate. In Snorre Læssøe Stephensen’s design the paradox of porcelain is accentuated: both fragile and robust.
