A chunky Soholm vase by Einar Johansen.
Moving on from a selection of small and delicate pottery, this vase is very much in the heavy-weight division. The vase dates from the 1960s, it's made by Soholm, Bornholm, Denmark and is solid and sculptural in form. The designer, Einar Johansen, has used masculine, angular shapes – I especially like the protruding discs. The vase is over 11 inches (28cm) high and is very heavy. It's strange but despite being 50 years old, to me, this object has a modern, futuristic look about it.
