ANE KATRINE VON BÜLOW
Graduated from Danmarks Designskole 1980. Studied Sumié brush painting in Japan.
Teacher at The Danish Design School 1983 – 2005 in ceramics decoration and serigraphy.
An interdisciplinary development has lead to a teaching-compendium ” serigraphy on ceramics and glass,” as well as decorations as a unified whole – serigraphy printed or transferred by projected light on the dobbelcurved form.
In her ceramic Studio, her work of art expands from very large bowls to small porcelain vessels, geometrical and simple shapes. The silk-screen print is used as a technique for an artistic expression of ornamentation where the repeated pattern encircles the vessel shape as texture.

Ane-katrine von Bülow was awarded the international Westerwaldpreis 2004 – Ceramic Europas, for her thin porcelain bowls ornamented in black and white. A work of art, which represents a meeting of fine traditional artisanship and new computer techniques.
Statement of the jury:
Perfection in the realisation of the creative idea,in form and dimension, faultless choice of decor and the lightness of touch in its execution on groups of vessels are just as convincing as the minute playful variations in form and decoration.
The repeated correspondences of the decor are not so purific but awaken instead a ludic pleasure which creates an eagerness to combine all the pieces in an endless variety of ways.
The realisation of serial design potential in its reduction to a pure black-and white made a deep impression on the judges, as did the lightness of the nevertheless severe form and colour variations, at the same time revealing a maximum of craft skills and everyday usability.
The sound produced by the large, paper-thin vessels is a masterly bonus and a pleasant surprise.
