Last year THE NORDIC TENT celebrated the 100thAnniversary of the influential 20thCentury Grande Dame of Danish Ceramics GUTTE ERIKSEN (1918-2018) and her influence both on her immediate contemporaries through her teachings at the Jydske Akademi such as Inger Rokkjaer/Hans Vangsoe/Anne Floeche a.o. as well as into the 21stcentury, but also through her widespread international exhibitions in Japan, France, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Holland and notably in the USA, where she taught for more than a year.
Her work is likewise to be found in most of the leading collections and museums including the V & A, but now also in the British Museum, where from the Autumn this year (2019) a selected Collection of her work can be seen in room 48 in the British Museum to be included in the permanent British Museum collections, donated by a group of Danes including her family in appreciation & paying homage to an outstanding and influential Danish ceramicist of the 20thcentury. Several of her works will be exhibited in THE NORDIC TENT as will examples of INGER ROKKJAER ,HANS VANGSOE AND ANNE FLOECHE works.
