Nils Thorsson created a prolific body of work for the ceramics manufacturer Royal Copenhagen. His work is often presented as an exemplar of mid-century Danish modernism and is praised in the field of ceramic design. Thorsson’s work as a designer varied greatly thematically, from the naturalistic featuring birds, fish, and butterfly motifs, to the abstract and geometric.  The series Baca produced in the 1960s features highly detailed and complex relief patterns.
