Danish-born designer Gry Fager graduated from the Danish Design School in 2008. Her irreverent aesthetic is evident in her line of blue and white ceramics, Mormor, which she created as her final project in school. The set caught the attention of Normann Copenhagen, and they started manufacturing the series in late 2008. Fager, in addition to her work in ceramics, is also a gifted glass and textile designer.
Mormor means Grandmother in Danish and that’s exactly what the pattern and texture will bring to mind, but that’s all that is grandmaish about these brand new and cool ceramics designed by Gry Fager for Normann Copenhagen. The Mormor series is made for the modern kitchen and dining table using ceramics as its point of departure, and it definitely applies to the traditional kitchen.
“I really like combining different things. What motivates me is developing good ideas for everyday things which people enjoy using and having in their homes. To me the aesthetic is a matter of course and its function is a must. With Mormor, the kitchen is the the place where everything starts, the central nervous system of the house where people all gather. I have been inspired by the atmosphere and the character of the kitchen, particularly older kitchens from my grandmother’s time and I have transferred the kitchen clichés into a modern context.
Mormor is en route to Vertigo Home.
