Details

Ulrika Eleonora Matilda Procopé-Nyman Born Helsinki, November 17, 1921 Died Tenerife, December 21, 1968 Known as Ulla Procopé, was a Finnish ceramic designer. Career She studied at the University of Art and Graphic Design in Helsinki. In 1948 she joined the Arabia ceramic factory in Helsinki as a potter, but the work on the turntable undermined her health. That is why artistic director Kaj Franck brought her to the design department in 1951, where she started making new Arabia designs. She took care of both the design and the painting. At the 1957 Triennale in Milan, she shared a display case with Kaj Franck. Her entry, consisting of three pots with lids, a pan and a teapot with lid and brown ceramic handle, received an honorable certificate. Although Ulla Procopé modestly remained in the background when Finnish design broke through internationally, her great merit lies in devising solutions for the mass production of pottery. Because she died relatively young, she was unable to take full advantage of the success of her work. She has a number of designs to her credit, which have made Arabia a famous and prestigious brand. The Spain-inspired Valencia porcelain service from 1960, the posthumously released brown stone service Ruska ("autumnal brown") in 1970 and the Mahonki service are typical examples of Finnish design, which became very popular in the second half of the twentieth century. and received classical status. Work by Ulla Procopé can be found in the Design Museum in Helsinki and the National Museum in Stockholm.
