Eva Staer-Nielsen

1911 - 1976

Eva Staer-Nielsen (1911–1976) was a Danish ceramic artist celebrated for her pioneering work at Royal Copenhagen, where she contributed significantly to mid-20th-century Scandinavian ceramic design. Known for her organic forms and tactile glazes, her pieces often drew inspiration from nature, as seen in her "Seagull" dinnerware series and the sculptural "Conch" vases. Staer-Nielsen's work is marked by a sensitivity to material and form, capturing the essence of Danish design with its elegance and functionality.
