Ceramics of the past and the present

My great auntie - that is my grandfather's sister on my mother's side did ceramics as well. I love her green bowl, even if it is by now a bit ragged around the edges. This is the only thing of hers I own. She seems to have been quite well known in Denmark, but unfortunately she was also working in the 50s and 60s, and, well you know how the colour scheme went in those days.......browns and oranges and yellows....so perhaps I am lucky, because this green is wonderful. The muddy brown bears that my parents have of hers, hmmm, well not so much....

Her dish is with my two little guys, singing or shouting, or just being surprised....they are both in stoneware clay, rather than porcelain clay, because these glazes, in my opinion, come out much clearer and more interestingly. 

 Green and cream, what a lovely combination. My auntie's danish emerald green bowl, and my little singing men
