A faience-fired decorative plate from the famous Swedish kiln Gustavsberg. In Gustavsberg, there was a department called G-Studion, where well-known designers such as Stig Lindberg and Lisa Larson produced artworks, apart from the mass-produced line. This is a work made in the atelier.

The form was designed by Stig Lindberg, known as the standard bearer of the mid-century golden age of Nordic modernity. The mid-century era is a time when a unique Nordic identity has awakened, independent of the traditional pan-European pottery culture. By this time, manufacturing methods such as bone china had already been established, but this product dared to use faience firing.

Faience ware is a pottery made of red clay that is dried and then immersed in a white glaze called tin glaze. It is a method devised in ancient Egypt, and it is the oldest method of making pottery using glaze in the world.

On the back of the plate is a "G" hand sign indicating that it was made in Gustavsberg's G Studio. "21" is the number that specifies the form, F is the pattern design (type of painting), and on the far right is a star that is the hand sign of Giovanni Pugno, the painter who was in charge of painting. The mark is drawn.Giovanni Pagno is a painter who was enrolled in Gustavsberg in the 1950s.At that time, G Studio had about 40 painters, and for quality control, they were all had its own signature.

Due to its structure, faience is more fragile than general pottery and rarely remains intact. It is over 30 cm long, and the milky white glaze is moist and beautiful.

There remains a video that conveys the production scenery of G Studio at that time. The man wearing the round glasses on his left hand is Stig Lindberg, the standard bearer of the mid-century. On the right is the master Wilhelm Kage, who was Gustavsberg's art director at the time.

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Born in Umeå, the central city of northern Sweden. Originally from Stockholm's art school Konstfack ( Learn painting at Konstfack. He joined Gustavsberg in 1937 and gradually rose to prominence under the tutelage of his mentor, Wilhelm Koge. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director in charge of design.

Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard bearer of Swedish modernism in the mid-20th century. During Lindberg's time, the Gustavsberg workshop was at its peak, and its works from that time are recognized as works from the golden period known as ``mid-century,'' and are highly valued. Lindberg's studio is called G-Studion, where young designers are demonstrating their skills and producing famous artists such as Lisa Larson.
