This is an oversized ceramic plate designed by Lisa Larson for Gustavsberg in the 1960s. In addition to the line that produced mass-market products, Gustavsberg had a department called G-Studion, where famous designers such as Stig Lindberg and Lisa Larsson produced artwork. This is a work made in that atelier. Each piece is handmade and features a backstamp with Lisa Larson's name on the back.

This ceramic plate has a very vivid crimson glaze. It is extremely large, about four times the size of a regular size ceramic plate, and weighs 4 kg. There is a bird series of ceramic plates called Drillsnäppa that uses red color, but since they use the same crimson glaze, they are thought to have been made around the same time, in the 1960s. However, there is no series name and it is not listed in the catalog, so this ceramic plate is a unique piece created by Lisa Larson.

Considering Lisa Larson's style, I think the wheels depicted are sunflowers. A large ring is expressed in bronze on a crimson background. Coupled with the huge size of the ceramic board, it has the greatest effect on the interior, and it has a special presence no matter where you display it, such as in an alcove, at the entrance, or in your atelier. Among Lisa Larson's unique piece ceramic plates, this is a masterpiece with particularly outstanding colors and shapes.

The two wires from manufacture remain on the back. It has excellent workmanship with excellent color and luster.

Lisa Larson (1931-2024)

A world-renowned ceramic artist representing Sweden. Born in the village of Härlunda, in the Älmhult district of Kronoberg county in the Småland region of southern Sweden.

When she was young, she aspired to be a clothing designer, but after enrolling at Gothenburg University of the Arts, she studied ceramics. One day, he was discovered by Stig Lindberg at a competition, and after a one-year trial period, he officially joined Gustavsberg as a designer. Shortly after, in 1955, he announced the Lilla zoo series, and in 1964 he devised the Afrika series, famous for its lion statues.

In addition to Gustavsberg, Lisa Larsson has also provided designs for Höganäs, domestic retail giant Åhléns, and German pottery manufacturer Rosenthal. After leaving Gustavsberg in 1979, he was active in various fields while continuing his creative activities freely, taking the position of a freelance artist under a voluntary contract with a company rather than an exclusive contract. In 1979 and 1981, he held solo exhibitions at the Seibu Department Store in Tokyo, and his solo exhibition in 1981 is said to have attracted 70,000 visitors.

Gustavsberg's G-Studion

G-Studion

Apart from the mass production line, Gustavsberg had a department called G-Studion. Famous designers such as Willhelm Koge, Stig Lindberg and Lisa Larsson created their artwork here.

Founded in 1942, G Studio was a group of artists, designers, craftsmen and illustrators whose activities ranged from creative work to exhibition ceramics, public space art production and industrial design. . It operated until 1993 and served as an ``aesthetic laboratory''. It was also responsible for providing design ideas for Gustavsberg's mass-produced products.

G-Studio was a renovated atelier in an old building from a ceramics factory in Gustavsberg, and was a hub for more than 100 artists and craftsmen. It is no exaggeration to say that Gustavsberg's ceramic tradition of the 20th century originated from here. It was a centerpiece of the Swedish art and design world and served as a breeding ground for new creativity.

Each piece of G Studio's work is handmade, and there are videos showing the production process. The video shows a man wearing round glasses, designer Stig Lindberg. And on the right side you can see Willhelm Koge, who was the studio director.
