The Supremacy of Salto

Considered the most important name in 20th Century Danish ceramics, it came as no surprise to me that this is the first acquisition of an Axel Salto to grace our shop. Small but rare and precious is this bowl made mid-century during his residency at Royal Copenhagen. In recent years his larger works have fetched record high numbers at international auction - the most important works have sold in excess of half a million dollars. His work is a celebration of nature and often refers to his interests in Asian art and mythology.
