Student at Copenhagen College of Art and Crafts:
Agnete attended the college from 1933 –36. Competition for admission
to the college was fierce as it was heavily subsidised by the
Danish government. Applicants worked at the college for a trial
period of a month to prove their ability and dedication before
a final selection was made. Her tutors included Sig Johansen,
Professor Rasmusen (illustration) and W. Staehr Nielsen (sculpture).
For a year between 1937-38, Agnete joined Gerhard Nielsen at Holbaek,
working on the factory floor, learning all aspects of stoneware
production. This country pottery produced heavy duty items for
use in the kitchen – pans, pickling jars and bowls which had an
extremely strong and durable body.
Natalie Krebs – Saxbo:
For a short period in 1939, Agnete worked with Natalie, gaining
much experience of dealing with high temperature porcelain.
