Studio Arhoj – Smoke Mountain – Katla – Incense holder and burner
Located by the harbour in Copenhagen, Studio Arhoj is a Danish interior & design studio run by Anders Arhoj. Originally founded in Tokyo in 2006, Studio Arhoj is now based in Denmark.
In addition to exploring the visual relationship between Scandinavian simplicity and traditional Japanese culture they are interested in keeping alive traditions and knowledge about old crafts such as wheel throwing and glaze construction.
Experimenting is a deeply integrated part of the daily production. They dedicate a lot of time to discovering and testing the seemingly endless possibilities of glaze and clay. Failure is something they know well, however, when something works the reward is worth the struggle.
Many of the items are hand-thrown by skilled potters on the throwing wheel in different kinds of clay. The porcelain items are cast in plaster molds by skilled artisans.
