PotterLove: Birthe Flexner
How is it that some of the best potters are not more internationally recognised?! One of my favourite potters, and one of the most talented, is Birthe Flexner. I met her through my good friend, Judith Wagenseller, owner of the House of Clay in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA.
Birthe did a workshop at the House of Clay and her way of combining thrown and slab elements, her glazing techniques, and her work with soft slabs is the basis for what I see many potters doing today. She was a woman ahead of her time!!
Birthe is from Denmark and was greatly influenced by the Danish Design Movement of the ’50s. Here is a bit about Birthe from this website
Her work is some of the best in the business! Here is the link to Birthe’s website:
