Bodil Manz Furniture

Danish, b. 1943

Bodil Manz is a ceramicist known for her predominant use of ultra-thin, translucent eggshell porcelain to create distinctive cylindrical forms, anchored by bold, geometric abstractions in a style evocative of Russian Suprematism. Much in the way Morandi approached a still life or Albers the square, her engagement with the cylinder form ad infinitum is studied in the master’s ability to extract sublime nuance from the seemingly quotidien. In her own words, “Focusing and concentrating on a single object such as a sphere, a square, a cylinder, a cup, fundamentally something quite ordinary, the stuff of everyday life, [seems] indeed almost banal. But during the process we discovered fresh aspects and suddenly ‘the ordinary’ became a new experience.” Manz’s work is included in many important museum collections including: the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Victoria and Albert in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Musée de Sèvres, France and the Museum of Modern Ceramic Art, Gifu, Japan.

Pitcher and Stoneware Vase by Bodil Manz & Trine Heegaard, for Kristen
By Bodil Manz
Located in Utrecht, NL
NOTE: We consider the white Pitcher as completely broken and will add it free of charge. This porcelain pitcher and oval shaped stoneware vase by the world-renowned Danish ceramist Bodil Manz are perfect representations of how Manz has perfected her ceramic art over 40 years, late 20th century. While there is an elemental Scandinavian simplicity to these ceramics, they are unique not only in their names. The six-sided white pitcher is decorated with black glaze and has a characteristic shape, one of Manz’s signature forms. The same can be said about the oval vase with bluish grey glaze that is decorated with an incised, geometric relief. The vase has a raw, yet carefully created texture which is the result of the artist’s experimentation with new challenges of expression and technique including working with such things as pictures of plaster and sand-cast porcelain. According to Oxford Ceramics it is a bit of a cliché to say that an artist has forged their own language, but in Bodil Manz’s case this is certainly true. Manz’s pots are so receptive to shadow and light that they carry their own sense of movement, a kind of transformative inner life. Both works are one of a kind and are signed by Bodil Manz. They were created in the artist’s own studio in Horve that she opened in 1967. Condition: The Stoneware Vase is in great vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Dimensions: Vase: 5.03 in W x 6.1 in D x 5.59 in H 12.8 cm W x 15.5 cm D x 14.2 cm H Pitcher: 3.54 in W x 2.83 in D x 3.74 in H 9 cm W x 7.2 cm D x 9.5 cm H About the designer: Bodil Manz (Danish, b. 1943) is a ceramicist known for her predominant use of ultra-thin, translucent eggshell porcelain to create distinctive cylindrical forms, anchored by bold, geometric abstractions in a style evocative of Russian Suprematism. Manz was born in Copenhagen in 1943. After graduating from the School of Arts and Craft, Copenhagen in 1965, she went on to study at the Escuela de Disneño y Artesanias in Mexico and Berkeley University in California. She established a studio with her late husband, ceramist Richard Manz...
