Magne Holter was a guest teacher in Rauland's Traditional Wood Folk Arts when we got there in January 1989. He was a well known as the designer of Norway's Kon Tiki Museum. His work in wood was a revelation to Lucy, who was allowed to search through hundreds of his beautiful watercolor studies for the carved and painted pine boards that his students were allowed to copy as long as they credited his design. Gene carved a pine board for me and I painted it, a treasured piece in our kitchen. This stoneware platter made at the Raulandsakademiet where Gene was teaching Red Cross refugees how to throw pots. Lucy's design used many of the elements Holter used in this work, culled from his own study of Norway's ancient weaponry, textiles and wood to help define contemporary Norwegian Folk Art design.
Oatmeal glaze, 14.25" diameter, 2" height. Dated 1989, with the Fossekall stamp we only used on pots we made that year in Norway.
