Lars had, from his early years a keen interest in ceramics. This interest was encouraged by his late uncle Reinhold Soendergaard Gregersen - himself a well known artist in Denmark. In 1981 Lars took up a four year apprenticeship with the Danish studio pottery Brangstrup Stoneware. After graduating, Lars worked for several potteries in Denmark as a potter and designer.
In 1993 he moved to London to work as a production manager in a company making ceramic tabletops. In 1995 he started his own business developing and selling his own designs and in 2000 Lars moved to Suffolk.
Lars works within the Scandinavian tradition of design and function. All designs are hand-thrown on the wheel in finest English porcelain, handles are hand pulled and all pots are fired by the craftsman himself.
At The Merchant’s Table we are proud to stock Lars Soendergaard’s larger pieces for the table and kitchen. These pieces, all in natural white are perfect for gatherings where sharing and conviviality are central.
