RW Guild introduces two new glazes, Opal and Topaz, to the popular KH Würtz collection. KH Würtz was founded in 2009 in western Denmark by Aage and Kasper Würtz, a father and son team hailing from a long line of ceramicists. Today, son Kasper continues the day-to-day operations of the studio and the KH Würtz tradition of producing tableware made completely by hand using ancient methods. The new Opal and Topaz glazes feature a striking mix of matte and glossiness, created through a hand-applied process of two layers of glaze plus glass silicia fired to produce a unique, shimmering surface. These one-of-a-kind pieces work well with our existing glazes - White, Black, Blue and Golden - to create a “meadow of glazes” on the table.
BY KH Wurtz
The ceramic stoneware Coffee Cup is hand-thrown and hand-glazed in the KH Würtz studio, founded near Horsens, Denmark, by the father and son team Aage and Kasper Würtz. Produced using ancient wheel-turning and glazing methods, the handmade ceramic tableware captures the beauty and simplicity of Nordic design with a signature graceful shape and a glazed surface in which tones modulate harmoniously.
