bente bonne
« on: September 15, 2008, 01:54:50 PM »
I have just bought an engraved flask which I think may have been made by the danish artist Bente Bonne.
It's signed B Bonne 72 and has the word Porse written accross it.
I will post a photo when I work out how to do that sort of thing !
I just wondered if anyone knows more about this artist/glassmaker.  There is very little coming up on google.

Just discovered that Porse Guld is a danish beer - highly rated by back packers ! 
It's all beginning to make sense.  More info on Bente Bonne much appreciated .   Then I can bore unwary visitors to the house about the history  of my little flask

I've two books on Danish studio glass winging their way from Denmark as we speak, so possibly they'll yield something on her. They're both published by Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, where (their website informs me) she has exhibited in the past.

One of the books, 'Dansk Glas 94' by Charlotte Sahl-Madsen and Sandra Blach, has a brief biographical page dedicate to Bonné.

This is roughly (very roughly) translated from Danish:

Education:
Glass engraver, Äse Voss Schrader.
Sculptural work with Harald Isenstein

Exhibitions:
Zweiter Coburger Glaspreis, Germany.
The International Exhibition of Glass Craft, Japan.
Statens Udstillingsbygning, Overgarden neden Vandet, Copenhagen.
New Glass In Europe, Düsseldorf, Germany
Internationale Studio-Glaskunst, Kunsthaus am Museum Køln, Germany.

Prizes / Awards:
Ole Haslund's Award
Danmarks Nationalbanks Jubilæumsfond af 1968
Statens Kunstfond

Description (of the illustrated piece - a large cast/fused glass sculpture of a face):
"Glass has many capabilities. Experiment, find new ways, learn from your mistakes, find strength with this living material, it is a stronger and stronger driving force for the next sculpture, shape, or bowl."

many thanks - she sounds as if she was a formidable character ! especially as art and glass was such ( outside finland ) a male preserve.  Many thanks and impressed by the danish translation !
