Henning Koppel, Pitcher 1952

Drawn from the State Art Collection, this display illustrated the influence of international trends on Western Australian design in the 1950s and 1960s. Featuring some new gifts to the collection together with the work of David Foulkes-Taylor, it particularly highlighted the linkages between the Gallery's historical Scandinavian collection and the modern. Designers represented included: Aalto, Jacobsen, Koppel, Palmqvist, Sarpaneva, Wirkkala, Geoffrey Allen, Foulkes-Taylor, and Guy and Helen Grey-Smith. Works represented a broad cross-section of the collection including textiles, ceramics, glass, jewellery and furniture.
