    ACT III, SCENE 2
HERMIA
    You speak not as you think

    Wiinblad, Bjørn
     

    Bjørn Wiinblad (pronounced Byurn Veenblahd), a Dane, was bjorn in 1918. He studied at Copenhagen's Technical High School and the RDA, and at the Lars Syberg Studio, Taastrup.

    He is known for his design skills in not only ceramics but furniture, glass, illustration, theatre, textiles and posters. He has achieved popular acclaim for his work with Nymølle from 1946 to 1956 and Rosenthal from 1957 to the late 1970s when he took control of Nymølle, and is popular throughout Europe, the Orient and particularly in the United States.


     

    Nymølle
     

    Nymølle is pronounced Neemurlla. Shortly before the second world war the Fuurstrøm factory was set up in Denmark to produce domestic wares that had traditionally been imported. The impending war threatened supply from outside. The company produced inexpensive earthenware goods and fulfilled its purpose.

    After the war production of more artistic lines started under the name Nymølle. Almost all the the output from the firm for the first decade after the war was designed by Bjørn Wiinblad. Other designers were employed as Wiinblad became busier with a wide variety of design work, and Nymølle enjoyed a high degree of success during the 1960s. In the mid-1970s the parent company went bankrupt and all its interests were sold except Nymølle. Nymølle struggled for a couple of years, and was then bought out by Bjørn Wiinblad.
