Unique - Girl with cat Helge Christoffersen ca 33 x 26 cm Royal Copenhagen Stoneware. In nice and mint condition
Helge Christoffersen (1925 – 1665) was trained as sculptor by Wiese & Son in 1940. At Frederiksberg’s Technical School his teacher Henry Luckow-Nielsen arranged that Helge Christoffersen could attend the Royal Academy of Art as Sculptor in 1943, where he received teaching by Utzon-Frank and Aksel Jorgensen till 1946. At the Copenhagen Spring Exhibition his debut was in 1945 and a few years later he received a Gold Medal in 1948 from the Academy. In this period he worked with special orders and as a helper for Utzon-Frank, Mogens Boeggild, J.F. Willumsen and Jais Nielsen. In 1947 Helge Christoffersen was employed at Royal Copenhagen as a co-worker for Jais Nielsen, and learned valuable insights in to the work with stoneware reliefs and the ox blood glaze. In 1947 Helge Christophersen won a competition creating a suggestion for a work of thee wall relief commemorating the liberation of Denmark for the Danish Parliament. 26 years old he was hired to make a monument for the famous Danish Poet and Vicar Steen Steensen Blicher in granite for The New Carlsberg foundation for the city of Kjellerup. At Royal Copenhagen he designed according to Leif Lautrup-Larsen more than 300 larger and smaller works – most of them unique pieces, only 14 pieces came in serial production and was to be found in the stoneware catalog. He had a special appreciation for the motif of cats as it is seen in a monograph by Bredo L. Grandjean.
