Historical Glaze

The importance of this piece can not be underestimated. Created by Patrick Nordstrom in 1925 in his own studio. The glaze with its multi-layered, drippy, textural quality was quite advanced for that period.  He brought this technique with him to other Scandinavian companies such as Royal Copenhagen and it became the basis for the "Sung" glaze - a trend towards Scandinavian design reinterpreting Asian techniques- followed by many of his contemporaries.
