A very rare Pippi Longstocking ceramic statue designed by Lisa Larson for Gustavsberg. Pippi Longstocking is a children's literature work published in 1945 by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. The main character is Pippi Longstocking (Pippi Langstromp), a 9-year-old girl who is extremely independent and free-spirited.

She befriends a brother and sister named Tommy and Annika who live next door, and they enjoy many adventures together. The story depicts the process of children questioning the adult world and discovering themselves. His works have been adapted into many media, including not only books, but also TV dramas, movies, and stage plays, and are loved all over the world. Pippi also has animal friends, a horse and a monkey, and the one riding on her left shoulder in this work is a monkey friend named "Mr. Nilsson." It depicts Pippi going on an adventure journey.

This piece was produced over a three-year period, but not only was it originally produced in small quantities, but the legs and other parts tend to be easily damaged, and there are very few that remain in good condition. The facial expressions are lively, and Pippi is a masterpiece that gives you a sense of her adventurous spirit. This time we received items in very good condition.

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.
