HELGE ØSTERBERG (1905-1982)
Helge Østerberg established his studio at Virum, near Copenhagen, Denmark in 1943 in the midst of WW2.
Østerberg primarily used stoneware mixed with chamotte clay to achieve a textural character, underlined by "primitive" etched decorations and discreet use of glazing on dark matte surfaces. Other works include bowls with subtle glazed exteriors with lush haresfur interiors.
His work is marked with the Scandinavian letter Ø from his surname.
