Bodil Manz

(Danish b.1943)

Danish artist, Bodil Manz is well known for her use of paper thin porcelain. Her slip-cast cylindrical forms have wafter-thin walls and are usually decorated with bold cubist designs. The thinness of their walls often merges the surface design with interior and exterior space of the vessel.

She was born in Copenhagen in 1943 and started her studies in ceramics at the School of Arts and Craft in the early 60’s. In 1967 she met her husband, fellow ceramist Richard Manz in Horve where they set up a studio together. She continues to live and work from there today.

She is recognised as an important potter throughout the world and many private and public collections hold her work in prized possession.
