Bode Willumsen (1895 -1987) was a renowned Danish sculptor and ceramicist. He was trained as a blacksmith & received his education at Bing & Grondahl in 1918. Bode hailed from a family of artistic lineage, with his father being the acclaimed painter J.F. Willumsen. Willumsen became a signing artist at Royal Copenhagen starting in 1925. Notably, he collaborated with his friend and fellow artist, Axel Salto, sharing a workshop and studio from 1932 until the outbreak of World War II disrupted their creative endeavors due to material shortages & returned to Royal Copenhagen where he created fantastic pieces inspired by animals & mythical creatures.
