Snorre Læssøe Stephensen, 1962
KYO was designed in 1962, by Snorre Læssøe Stephensen, one of the forefathers of the Danish ceramic tradition. The collection carries traces of both Scandinavia and Japan. Both functional and sculptural, the new collection from mazo is very Scandinavian and Japanese at the same time. The series consists of cups, pitchers, and vases made of porcelain and stoneware. Functionality and simplicity define these products - they are modest and have an almost stern expression, yet with a delicate touch.

Porcelain has been a passion of Snorre Læssøe
Stephensen for half a century. His early days as a
craftsman were spent at the Royal Porcelain Factory,
which was his workplace for a long period of time.
However, it was his father, designer and architect
Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, who introduced him
to the world of porcelain and clay.
Snorre Læssøe Stephensen
Snorre Læssøe Stephensen’s path into the world of clay and porcelain started with a playful collaboration with his Father, designer and architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen. Soon, though, it was Snorre Læssøe Stephensen who was creating designs for Royal Copenhagen, and later became the leader of the unique items line of the Royal Danish Academy of Arts, whilst he continued to carry out his innovative ideas in his own brand.
