Fantastic porcelain bowl designed by Bjørn Wiinblad for Rosenthal’s studio linie. It has a beautiful blue and white somewhat abstract and somewhat figural pattern. It’s signed by Wiinblad and studio linie but does not have a Rosenthall marking other than the studio linie which was one of their famed divisions and periods.
Wiinblad was a Danish painter, designer and artist in porcelain, ceramics, silver, bronze, textiles, and graphics. His work has been shown widely in Europe and in the United States in 1954 and in Japan, Australia and Canada in 1968.
In 1957 Wiinblad was appointed Chief Designer for the prestigious Rosenthal brand, a position that enhanced his international reputation even further. He was happy to travel all over Europe in connection with launches of dinner services, and people queued up to have items signed by him.
Wiinblad was not as readily recognized in Denmark do to his unusual, ‘un-Danish’ style – and with the fact that he earned a great deal of money from his art and productions.
What really mattered to Wiinblad was to give free rein to his incredible creative zest and to spread delight to as many people as possible through his numerous and varied productions–the quality of a true artist.
Wiinblad was one of a kind, blessed with the ability to rise above the mundane even though he was often the target of criticism from the art elite of Copenhagen.
