> 2012 / ceramic money bank / Studio Arhoj


Inspired by a fortunetellers crystal ball I designed a money bank for grown ups: ORB ( from latin orbis = circle) is handmade in Denmark from stained high-fired stoneware and many different glazes.

ORB is available in a wide range of editions, among others the classic version in dark grey stoneware covered by a melting white glaze hanging like drops of cream around the circular shape. The glazes are constantly combined and further developed  – everything is unique – and the way the clay and glaze combine in the kiln is completely unpredictable.

The shape and feel of the ORB joins a rising trend of raw stoneware and ceramics throughout Scandinavia, and clearly acknowledges the love for traditional Japanese arts & crafts.

ORB functions not only as a money bank but also as a piece of clean, abstract sculpture – a classic Scandinavian design product made of honest, natural materials.

ORB fits well into both the rustic, architect drawn spaces and the more curiously decorated homes with colourful design and art.


Price: 499 DKK. Size: 13 x 15 cm.
