ABOUT TORTUS

Tortus is about the love of making and passion for materials. So like the noble creature from which we derive our name, we move at our own humble pace. By Tortus, we are dedicated to the modern adaptation of traditional and time-tested making methods with the goal of creating vessels of a timeless quality and beauty. Our production is based on a seamless dialogue between design and hand-work drives an ever-evolving production of ceramics rich in form, color and texture, making each encounter with our objects something unique.

ERIC LANDON

Potter & Co-Founder of Tortus Copenhagen

Both a master potter and Designer, Eric is focused on a constant refinement of both form and technique. For him, the one cannot evolve naturally without the other. His love for wheel thrown pottery started already at age 16 and has evolved into a way of life, his vocation. For Eric, shaping objects by hand is not a look back at the past. He firmly believes that hand-crafting objects of a timeless value is a way forward.

Eric is a graduate of the Danish school of Design in Copenhagen and has been awarded with a number of grants, international exhibition selections, and other distinguishments for the quality of his work.
