Priscilla Mouritzen was born in Cape Town, South Africa and attended the School of Art in Durban before setting up her own ceramic studio in England in 1968. She spent a decade in England before moving to Denmark where she has lived and worked since.

She makes pinch pots using porcelain and engobe glazes – in 1997 she exhibited a thousand of these bowls at her exhibition at Galerie Besson. Recently she has been making woodfired versions of these bowls.

Mouritzen has exhibited widely in Europe and is a board member of the Guldagergaard Ceramic Centre, Skælskør and the World Crafts Council Europe. She is a regular participant in seminars and conferences on ceramics.
