Bornholm is a beautiful island, surrounded by the Baltic Sea and with widely varying countryside: kilometers of silvery beaches alongside the south coast, steep rocky coast to the north, rift valleys with waterfalls and woodland lakes and rocks among the trees in one of the most beautiful forests in Denmark. The island of Bornholm covers 587 square kilometers.

Bornholm has a long history of ceramic tradition in industrial production and independent ceramic studio workshops. In the 18th century large quantities of ceramics were produced for exports to the neighbouring countries and in the 19th century the ceramic factories flourished and won accolades for their work in international exhibitions. The factories had a large number of artists attached. In the 1930′s some of these artists established independent studio workshops that laid the ground for the diversity we see today, with more than 50 independant ceramic workshops on the island.
