Kähler Canvas Vase, Two Variants
- The Designer
- The Maker
Based on a desire to bring Kähler's craftsmanship legacy and classic techniques up to date, Meyer Lavigne took the shapes of the vases from the archives and playfully created an authentic, artistic expression with even more depth and life thanks to the deep, rich glazes. Canvas is all about the brushstrokes and the intention behind them. You can clearly see that the vases are painted by hand, which lends an expressive, vibrant look. In the decorations, you can sense the designer's artistic understanding and intuitive movements that make each hand-painted vase a small work of art in itself. The vase is 5.9 inches and decorated with vertical brush strokes starting from the top and moving downwards. The strokes alternate between wide and narrow, and the edge along the opening of the vase has a transparent black glaze that creates a marked contrast to the delicate colors.

The Danish design duo Meyer-Lavigne consists of Kristine Meyer and Sabine Lavigne. They both graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, specializing in ceramics and glass.
Meyer-Lavigne design and manufacture their own products for the home, creating unique works for exhibitions and galleries, and the decorative and graphic approach to ceramics and glass has become Meyer Lavigne’s trademark.
Meyer-Lavigne take an immediate, playful and experimental approach to design. And with their innovative style and modern color choices, they always contribute to reflections in glass and all the other materials they work with, ranging from ceramics to textiles, wood and prints.
Meyer-Lavigne unfold classic design traditions by embracing a spectacular quirkiness best described as a visual, poetic and subtle story. Here the focus is on materials and sensuality and presence of the artist's hand.
The story of Kähler begins as early as 1839, when the Dutch potter Herman J. Kähler opens a small ceramics workshop in Næstved and turns the first Kähler vase. It marks the start of a unique design adventure that will one day resonate around the world. However, it is only when his son Herman A. Kähler takes over the famous workshop in 1875 that the ceramic adventure really begins.
Craftsmanship, creativity and artistic collaborations have been part of Kähler's DNA since the beginning. And they still are. It's what has made Kähler an iconic ceramic brand, one which has charted the course of Danish ceramic design.
We create all our products based on Kähler's handmade design traditions. We've always done that—and we always will.
