Stig Lindberg

Although I have a, not so secret, love affair with ceramics, I have to confess that I’ve only heard of Stig Lindberg recently.

Stig Lindberg was — for all of you who are out of the loop, just as I was — a Swedish designer who was renowned in the 1950’s for his playful design.

He worked in a range of styles and materials. His delicate ceramic forms show his eye for sculpture and proportion.

Although I haven’t heard from the man until recently, it seems that I’ve been a fan without even knowing. Here's the evidence:

I have a lovely vase which pattern is reminicent of the one for the Reptile series.

The leaf pattern on this coffee pot and milk jug made me think of me of his famous Berså ceramics.

And I had a lot of comments after I posted this bowl of people saying how it reminded them of Lindberg’s work.

After seeing these bowls I can tell why...


So time to declare my love to the world: *screams at the top of her lungs* I heart Stig Lindberg!
