Arne Bang was born in Denmark in 1901. After finishing his studies in sculpture at the Royal Academy of Arts, he participated in the 1929 world’s fair in Barcelona. In 1932, he opened his own studio and began using ceramic and stoneware to create sophisticated utilitarian objects in neoclassical shapes, decorated with folds and fluting, and sometimes having silver lids. He exhibited at the 1937 Paris exposition and won many awards in Scandinavia and Europe. He passed away in 1983.
