Dansk was founded in 1954 by Martha and Ted Nierenberg, a mid-century couple. Working with Danish artist/designer Jens Quistgaard they brought Scandinavian style to a stylish new American middle class. Quistgaard's interest in combining modernism and history and his quest for quality and functionality established the ethos that remains at the heart of Dansk today.
Tera is very beautiful stoneware made in Japan, the design is inspired by the wind-blown edges of sand dunes. The combination of satin and shiny glazes with the burnt orange line between them fully expresses the refinement that ceramics can achieve.
