Learn to make pottery from one of the country's most talented ceramic artists.
The surname Würtz is likely familiar to many pottery enthusiasts - even internationally! Aage Würtz comes from a family of skilled ceramic artists and has extensive experience in production and teaching dating back to the 1970s. Together with the equally skilled Gitte Einshøj Würtz, he offers pottery courses with individual throwing instruction from his 175 m2 studio and workshop on Smedegade, centrally located in Horsens.
The courses are two-day courses, six hours per day, with a maximum of three students at a time. This is done to ensure maximum learning for each student, who can look forward to individual instruction and coaching throughout the course.
The course can be tailored to individual needs if there are specific requests for content.
Aage Würtz - Danish design at its best
Aage Würtz's passion for pottery dates back to the 1970s, when he started as an apprentice. He was, among other things, an apprentice to his sister Marie Würtz, who today owns the shop/workshop Pottemageren in Juelsminde. In the 1980s, he started his own business but was hit by a growing trend of people no longer wanting unique earthenware, but instead, white, uniform porcelain. Therefore, Aage Würtz chose to take a break from pottery. However, in the 1990s, times changed, and he started the company KH Würtz with his son Kasper Würtz. The company achieved considerable popularity and developed the service that has become a signature for Restaurant Noma, among others. Today, Kasper owns KH Würtz, while Aage Würtz sells his own collections, which are sold by selected art dealers, including Art'M in Horsens. The art is created in the workshop on Smedegade, where the courses also take place.
All of Aage Würtz's ceramics are unique creations made entirely by hand using old-fashioned wheel-throwing techniques. They are functional pieces such as teapots, cups, vases, and bowls with a fantastic glaze and a beautiful play between colors.
