Ole Jensen

Ole Jensen is a ceramist and designer born in 1958 in Denmark. Jensen attaches great importance to the primary function of things and to the pleasure of performing everyday tasks. With a strict adherence to functionalism and simultaneously deploying a wry sense of humour, his housewares are all at once highly utilitarian and sculpturally playful. His past honors and awards include the Kay Bojesen Memorial Prize (1997); a three year Grant by the Danish Arts Foundation (1998); Thorvald Bindesbøll Medal of The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (2004); Design Plus Prize, Ambiente Fair, Frankfurt (1998, 2002, 2005) and The Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize, Sweden (2006).

Jensen’s work is permanently on display at the New Carlsberg Foundation, Copenhagen; Danish Museum of Art and Design, Copenhagen; Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Cologne; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Röhsska Design Museum, Gothenburg, Sweden, among others. He graduated from the Design School in Kolding, Denmark in 1985, and from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen in 1990.
