Axel Salto

Axel Salto (1889-1961) was a Danish ceramist, painter, and designer. He was born in Copenhagen, Denmark into a family of traders. He received his formal training at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the early 1900s, and after graduation, worked as a studio artist in glass, pottery, and tapestry design. Salto gained international recognition for his ceramic works, which were typically characterized by bulbous and organic forms created in shades of blue-green glazes. His oil paintings were also well-known and often depicted abstracted figures. Salto held a strong attachment to his Danish heritage and was a major contributor to the renewal of Danish creative expression in the 20th Century. Notable works by Salto include the sculptural fountain in Rådhuspladsen, Copenhagen, the Lurblæserne ceramic sculptures at the Tivoli Gardens, and the installation at the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona.
