Løvemose was a pottery on the island of Langeland, Denmark, run by husband and wife team Marie Hansen (d. 2008) and Johannes Hansen (d. 2003). I haven't found a starting date for the pottery, but it closed in the late 1980's. It was of a reasonable size with up to 15 staff working there at its peak. The word Lovemose apparently translates as "Lions Bog".
They were a very popular and successful pottery that catered mainly for the tourist and local market, and now their work is finding a popularity with a whole new generation around the world.
This Lovemose design is called Graasten. Possibly named after the town of Graasten in southern Denmark, or possibly and simply meaning "grey stone". It is one of the most impressive Lovomose designs I have come across with its beautifully ribbed texture, subtle grey/blue/green glaze with hints of brown and black, and in parts the deep red terracotta clay almost showing through. A real Danish Design classic I think.
I have had a jug from this series before with a cane wrapped handle, which really sets off the design. The only disappointment here is the missing lid from the handled sugar bowl below ..... but I'm sure if I wait long enough one will turn up eventually like everything seems to :)
