Soholm 1835 - 1996

Søholm Pottery on the Danish island of Bornholm was founded in 1835 by the Wolffsen family. From initially producing utilitarian pottery, production moved to decorative work. During the war years, the artistic designer was Nis Stougaard (1906-87). The 1950's saw the introduction of new ranges of houseware (some decorated by the young Noomi Backhausen), as well as wall plaques, figures and lighting. Artists included Johannes Hedegaard (1915-), Henning Seidelin and Orla Muff (1903-). The extensive range continued into the 60's and 70's with a number of contributing artists such as Einar Johansen, Maria Philippi, Noomi Backhausen, Arne Ranslet (1931-) and Haiko Nitzsche (1943-). During the 1980's, new ranges were created by Christel and Christer Holmgren (Baltic, Viva, Multi and Circo) and in the 1990's the Åbo range by Per Rehfeldt met with much success. Rehfeldt now runs a website where examples of his work can be seen. (See Links)
