Shopper’s Diary: Black Concept Store in Copenhagen

February 19, 2014 6:00 PM

Anne Black, one of Denmark’s star ceramic artists, recently opened a concept shop in Copenhagen featuring an idiosyncratic mix of wares (furniture from e15, home accessories from Moormann, and linens from Society) as well as her own delicate, sherbet-hued pieces. Black, who graduated from the Kolding School of Design in 1996, apprenticed with several ceramicists before launching her own line with her husband, Jesper, which is made by hand in her studio on the outskirts of Hanoi in Vietnam.
