Nils Thorsson’s exacting approach to surface design can be seen in the highly detailed and complex relief pattern on this vase from the BACA series for Royal Copenhagen where he was Artistic Director. A departure from his designs based on fish and fowl, this vase is decorated with an overlapping pattern of cross shapes.
