The works from the Hansen-Ross pottery stand out for their faithfulness to the modernistic Scandinavian design tradition. They were partially influenced by the Leach-Hamada craft ethos, dominant since the 1940 publication of Leach’s “A Potters Book.” They were, however, relatively uninfluenced by the new tidal wave of American-inspired styles, forms and teaching.  A joint similarity of training and aesthetics kept the Hansen-Ross line pure, clean, precise and modern in the Scandinavian idiom.
