Bodil ManzBorn: 1943
Place of Birth: Copenhagen
Bodil Manz has been known as a master of eggshell porcelain for many years now. She studied ceramics at the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen, then at the Escuelo de Diseno y Artesanias in Mexico and Berkeley University in California, USA.
Her cylinders are slip cast porcelain, which she decorated with geometrical patterns on both sides, applied with plain decals. The effect is a pattern on the one side, offset by a shadow of a related pattern on the other. They are so translucent, you can sometimes discern the light passing through them, creating wonderful shadows and drama.
Bodil Manz will be the subject of a solo exhibition from the 2nd August - 1st September 2018.
