About

Nils Thorsson was Royal Copenhagen’s most prolific designer. He joined the factory as an apprentice in 1912 and worked there for more than sixty years, producing at least three major production lines. His exquisite studio ceramics, many in high-fired or celadon glazes, are much lesser known.
