Aage Würtz is a seasoned studio ceramist whose career and decades of devotion to artisanal excellence were inspired both by Scandinavia’s centuries’-old utilitarian crafts traditions, and in his own time by Bernard Leach, the father of 20th century British studio pottery, which had a global impact.

Becoming an expert at pigment-mixing and dipping, often adding extra elements such as crystals and iron filings tossed or applied with a sponge or spray gun, Kasper imparts both the subtle and mellow colorations and speckled textures that contemporary Würtz ceramics are known for. What’s more, he serves as the K.H. Würtz liaison for collaborations with chefs and restauranteurs on developing ad hoc custom-designed tableware for unique new dishes.
