This hand-painted coffee cup was created by Lisa Larson in 1993 at Keramik Studio, the in-house workshop she set up at Gustavsberg. This is a one-of-a-kind cup that was not mass-produced, and its plump, hand-painted form is vividly decorated with blue glaze. The painting was done by Lisa Larson herself, and the bottom is handwritten with Lisa Larson's signature.

Lisa Larson left Gustavsberg in 1979 to work as a freelancer, but was welcomed back to the company with good benefits and an environment where she could concentrate on her own creative activities. This is a limited edition item produced by Lisa Larson, who was already a world-renowned artist, at a highly technically advanced level.

Lisa Larson's works in the 1990s were different from the mid-century era of the mid-20th century, when she explored new Nordic pottery that took advantage of the rise in pottery technology. Many of his earlier works had relatively dark tones, but this work follows the style of Matilda and Josephine from Gustavsberg's time. It is a wonderful piece that is simple yet reminiscent of the designs of yesteryear.

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.
