Inger Rokkjaer

(Danish 1934-2008)

Inger Rokkjaer studied at Jutland Academy of Fine Arts, Arhus in the late 1960s, where she was taught by Gutte Eriksen. She went on to open her own workshop in 1969, later returning to Jutland Academy in the 1980s to teach. Rokkjaer is known for her simple forms, and for her mastery of raku technique, and there is a dialogue between Danish and Japanese design and ceramic tradition in her making. She favoured in particular lidded jars, sometimes with carved or faceted decoration, and choice of rich, earthy colours.
