You can still make it Holmegaard Work to see ‘Picasso – A Tribute to Ceramics’ before the performance closes on October 23.
A nice day trip
Holmegaard Værk, which opened in the former glass factory Holmegaard in 2020, is a new museum dedicated to glass, ceramics and design.
It’s an hour’s drive from Copenhagen, so a nice day trip, and if you’re in for a meal on your excursion, the restaurant, also called Holmegaard, has some of the best smørrebrød in Denmark.
The ceramic works from the American Rosenbaum Collection are shown for the first time in Denmark. It is a small exhibition of 42 pieces, which is very nice as you can indulge in each piece without being overwhelmed.
The scenography of the performance is bold and brave, which is quite rare in Danish museums. For example, Picasso’s famous striped T-shirt has inspired the decoration of the columns and even the clothes worn by the staff.
It is very well composed, with an ‘Owl Tree’ in the middle of the display surrounded by seating that invites you to take it all in. Each ceramic piece is protected by beautiful handmade glass designed by the skilled craftsmen at Holmegaard Værk. They are positioned so that you can walk around each work and see it from all sides.
Workshops and masters at work
At Holmegaard Værk you can also experience the open glass studio, where excellent international glassblowers show their skills.
Or you can take part in one of the many ceramics, glass and design workshops and masterclasses.
