About the design
The No. 232 pottery sconce is designed by Danish pottery maker Jette Helleroe for AXELLA Design in the 1970s.
A cylindrical pottery sconce with a charming slightly curved shape and a bright colorful glaze. The sconce is covered with square shaped peepholes in various sizes, emphasized by a rich dark brown, almost burgundy rim, while the surrounding glaze features a wonderful specter of colors in blue and green nuances. The same rich dark brown rim glaze is used towards the top and bottom, while the inside is covered with a thin gray-greenish glaze, revealing the deep red tones in the clay underneath.
The light emits through the peepholes, leaving a pattern of light dots onto the surrounding space. The open top and bottom leaves a direct beam of light upwards and downwards.
It is hallmarked AXELLA design, signed Hellerøe (for Jette Hellerøe) and a number I read as 232, but it is very hard to read the number.
