Spaltekanden is the most famous work by Eva Stæhr-Nielsen (and Saxbo). It was produced from 1933 until Saxbo shut down in 1968. Spaltekanden is stoneware with egg-white glazing and is handmade in Portugal.
It is a unique piece of ceramic art and works everywhere in the home, both as an ewer, a vase and as a sculpture.
The shape of Spaltekanden emerges by an unique utilization of a turned, tall and narrow neck that is cut-through. One part is bend forward as spout while the second part is bend backwards as handle.
Spaltekanden is available in standard size - 24 cm high - and a smaller version with a height of 18 cm.
In 1932, Eva Stæhr-Nielsen began her long career as a highly respected and innovative ceramicist at Saxbo stoneware. She was soon appointed head designer and worked closely with Saxbo’s co-founder, the ceramic glaze artist Nathalie Krebs. During her career, Eva Stæhr-Nielsen was awarded numerous international design prizes in Milan, Paris, Tokyo and the United States, among many others. Today, her stoneware design is much sought after by collectors all over the world.
Spring Copenhagen works closely with Eva Stæhr-Nielsen’s family to relaunch some of the unique and timeless design pieces she created in the years from 1932 to 1968.
