  • Description

    Artist: Michael Bang (1942-2013): Danish designer and ceramicist behind some of Holmegaard’s most widespread and successful designs over the years, and many have become collectors’ items. Michael Bang was the son of Holmegaard’s first designer, Jacob E. Bang and, before he joined Holmegaard Glass Factory, he worked at Bjørn Wiinblad’s workshop, the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory, and Ekenäs Glasbruk AB in Sweden.In his design work, Michael Bang was a master of connecting the simple with the practical, which is synonymous with the Scandinavian lifestyle and everyday life – and then adding that unique, original twist or fun shape to the glass, making him one of the best glass artists. It was Michael Bang who added bright colours to the glass, and became glass’ answer to contemporary pop culture with pieces made from mouth-blown glass in the original colours that were typical of the 1970s.
    Michael Bang also created vases and flowerpots for the MB range in the early 1980s, and designed the iconic Mandarin lamps in mouth-blown, white opal glass – which was considered the speciality of the glass factory.
