Nils Thorsson’s exacting approach to surface design can be seen in the highly detailed and complex relief pattern on this pair of vases from the BACA series for Royal Copenhagen where he was Artistic Director. A pattern of fish dancing across the surface of each nearly reads floral. Please note, this pair’s color/tone does not match with one lighter overall – something I consider a plus.
