Jais Nielsen (1885-1961) was celebrated as one of Denmark’s
greatest ceramic artists at the beginning of the 20th century.
The interest in his sublime ceramics still lives on today. Jais
Nielsen’s art was rooted in the Avantgarde of Modernism and
was strongly inspired by Antiquity and the Middle Ages as well
as the dramatic stories of The Bible. Here a kaleidoscopic light
is shed on his ceramic oeuvre.
