INGER HANMANN (1918-2007)
Inger Hanmann's work is distinquished by it's decoration. Her pieces use enamel on silver with the enamel in bold swirling colors in an abstract style. She is a painter, sculptor and ceramist and one of the foremost enamelists in Scandinavia. Her early eduction was in applied art at the Tegne-og Kunstindustriskolen for Kvinder (Drawing and Applied-Art School for Women) and in fine art at the P. Rostrup Boyesens Malerskole (P. Rostrup Boyesen's Artists' School). Her interest in enameling began during a trip to italy where she saw beautiful 15th Century pieces. Her enamel works were first produced commercially by A. Michelsen in the 1950s. Her work for Georg Jensen began around 1980, following Jensen's acquisition of A. Michelsen.
