Bang, Arne

(1901 - 1983)

Arne Bang (1901 – 1983) was one of the most prolific Danish ceramists. He was trained as a sculptor and in 1926 he started a Københavns Stentøjs Brænderi with Carl Halier. In 1929 he was hired by Holmegaard Glassworks to start a ceramic division: Holmegaards Stentøj, which produced his designs. He also made his own studio pieces.

As a general rule, the lower the model number, the older his pieces are. Most of his work was made in production, but Bang made some studio pieces, typically incised with ‘AB’.

His brother was the architect and designer Jacob E. Bang. His son Jacob also was a ceramist.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website. A visit -  by appointment only - gives you the full insight.
