This handcrafted stoneware candleholder is part of the ‘Cactus’ collection, which was a collaboration between the two ceramic artists Noomi Backhausen (glaze) and Paul Brandborg (shape). It is produced on the legendary ceramics factory Søholm Pottery.
Noomi Backhausen (1938-2011) is famous for her work at Søholm Pottery on the island Bornholm in Denmark, where she was one of the key employees between 1966 and 1990. Noomi’s designs are always bold and expressive, and has a joyful and occasionally playful feel to it.
The clay on Bornholm is of a very high quality and therefore Bornholm has always attracted a lot of ceramists. Søholm Pottery was founded in 1835 by Edvard Christian Sonne and Herman Sonne Wolffsen. Through the years different owners managed to keep in touch with times, by hiring some of the top ceramic artists of the times. Many of the greatest ceramics craftsmen and women of Denmark, has at some point either, worked or done apprenticeship at Søholm. Søholm has established itself as one of the top makers of Scandinavia midcentury icons of stoneware.
The factory closed in 1996.
