Axel Johannes Salto (1889 1961) was an internationally known Danish ceramist. His work includes painting, graphic design and illustrations for books, jewelery and textiles. As a writer and founder of the art journal 'Klingen' (1917-1919), Salto was an important contributor to the art debate in Denmark. He had his debut as a painter in 1911, but his primary career as a potter took off at the Paris Exhibition in 1925.
