Christian Bruun Biography
Danish artist Christian Bruun's work combines the traditional potter’s methods with a sculptor's artistry. The details of certain pieces are derived from the earthenware tradition, but are carried out in porcelain. His work includes hand-thrown porcelain tableware to large-scale interior works of art. Bruun is known in Denmark as one of the best throwers in the country for the very thin, soft, hand-thrown white porcelain he produces. His limited edition wood-fired porcelains are hand thrown and are created in Denmark at the Guldagergard center. Bruun’s large stoneware jars are made in Vietnam, where he can access very large wood fire kilns (which measure 50,000 feet, cubed!). These large pieces are gracefully at home both inside and outside.
Bruun’s work is carried in Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as the Louvre in Paris. His work is also on permanent display at both The Danish Design Museum and Ceramic Clay Museum in Denmark.
