Bjorn Wiinblad Candleholder

Bjorn Wiinblad is gifted with a sparkling fantasy putting him in the position to create exuberant masterpieces of ceramics, which during the years have enthused people across the globe. There is no doubt about his significant position within the decorative art and craftwork. His design is strongly personal and often has a touch of Oriental inspiration. In 1998, when Bjorn Wiinblad celebrated his 80 birthday, the exhibition place Sophienholm in Lyngby north of the Danish capital Copenhagen dedicated a special exhibition to his works through time. For the exhibition a catalogue with text written by Bjorn Wiinblad himself was published.

A peculiar tradition in Wiinblad's family was that the youngsters usually got an education as typesetter, only to find out which line of business they would actually choose later in life. 17 years old Wiinblad followed this tradition and became a typesetters apprentice in 1935. Luckily he left this path as a technical composer of newspaper pages and became an artist. To become a designer was a natural choice for Bjorn Wiinblad who already as a child was renowned for his creative mind. Before Christmas he was always busy drawing, painting, cutting and pasting astonishing gifts for friends and family.

Apparently, his calling is to create designs that makes the world a little bit more beautiful, a little more inspiring, a little more funny and often much more colourful. In doing so, he works in many different areas, for example with ceramics, porcelain, glass, posters, decoration for the theatres as well as textiles. In his own words, working with many different kinds of art is "a permanent search for the uncertain to be a beginner so that I must exert myself to meet the requirements of the different tasks". This shall be seen contrary to the artists seeking perfection in one specific area.

Bjorn Wiinblad Candleholder made his dream of illustrating Mozart's opera The Magic Flute in relief form come true with this porcelain service. Probably the most technically complex Rosenthal studio-line form evokes the appearance of a production of the famous Mozart opera in porcelain. Each set element displays a detailed relief of one of the opera scenes. The undersides display the respective libretto text in the ornamental Wiinblad handwriting. The characteristic Magic Flute reliefs are decorated with a hand painted platinum coating. Please purchase on online
