The Road Less Travelled
You may be accustomed to finding our traditional line, priced to be affordable to the middle class. We would love to be making it and also to be teaching others how to make our line but, alas, we do not currently have a production and training studio. To raise funds for a studio we are putting our vintage collection of rare, one of a kind and original design prototypes on the market. To learn more, follow our blog, Andersen Studio Evolution Diaries. We love this process and are committed to seeing it continue for the benefit of future makers.
Brenda Andersen designed many of Andersen Design's production patterns and in the process there were times when she veneered into pure creativity producing uniquely and spontaneous one of a kind objects of art.The liberty to let the craftsmanship and discipline of repetitive patterning interact with the inspired imagination of the creative artisan became part of the Andersen Design production process confounding conventional concepts of production.
This Fish is the only one of its kind painted in a brown, green and black color palette in Brenda's inimitable style. The fish is painted on Weston's long oval platter, circa 1950's.16 inches long, 7.5 inches wide.1 inch high. The signature on the bottom, both carved and stamped with "ceramics by anderson" using the swedish spelling of anderson, dates the platter in the early fifties, when the Andersen's were on Southport Island and had not yet reverted the spelling of their last name to the original Danish version "andersen".
