Collection: Lisa Larson

Lisa Larson (1931-2024)

A world-renowned Swedish ceramicist. Born in Härlunda, a village of about 500 people in the Älmhult district of Kronoberg County in the Småland region in southern Sweden. As a child, he aspired to be a fashion designer, but after entering the Gothenburg University of the Arts, he studied ceramics. One day, he was discovered by Stig Lindberg at a competition, and after a one-year probationary period, he officially joined Gustavsberg as a designer. Shortly after, in 1955, he released the Lilla zoo series, and in 1964 he came up with the Afrika series, famous for its lion statues.

Lisa Larson has not only worked for Gustavsberg, but has also provided designs for Höganäs, the major domestic retailer Åhléns, and the German ceramic manufacturer Rosenthal. After leaving Gustavsberg in 1979, she became a freelance artist, working on a voluntary basis with companies, rather than as an exclusive contractor, and continued to work freely in various fields. In 1979 and 1981, she held solo exhibitions at Seibu Department Store in Tokyo, and the 1981 exhibition was visited by a total of 70,000 people.
