Claes Thell red vase
It took a while before I really started to appreciate the work of Claes Thell, but now he is one of my absolute favorite potters. Sadly he passed away this year, but I had the privilege to meet him, and he was an incredible nice, low-key and generous man with over fifty years of making pottery. That is respect. And that is one reason to love his his work. He combines a strong personal and artistically language inspired by on one hand the classic forms and glazes of East Asian ceramics, and on the other hand Swedish traditional pottery and the Scandinavian stoneware tradition. And the result can be just as beautiful as this one.
After some years at Höganäs he established his own studio in Ödåkra.
