Helle Allpass

Helle Allpass, Danish Potter Born 18 September 1932 - 25 January 2000. She trained as an architect but decided to follow the family tradition and moved into pottery.  Both her grandfather and father (Christian Schollert) were potters. She opened her own workshop in Vedbæk and in 1964 moved to an old farm house in Espergærde, north of Copenhagen, where she lived and worked for the rest of her life. She suffered from Parkinson's disease from 1996 and her daughter Ane worked with her from that time.  Ane now has her own pottery studio in Copenhagen.  http://www.aneschollert.dk
