Lisa Larson is a small pottery statue called the miniature series that was produced in Gustavsberg for three years from 1969. Multiple products were not developed in series, and only two points of this fisherman and mermaid statue were produced. It is a ceramic statue of a fisherman holding a fish in both hands, symbolizing a big catch, and a mermaid princess whose lower body is a plump body like a fish. If you look closely at the expressions, you can see the contrast between the mermaid with sideways eyes and the fisherman with a surprised look. The ceramic statues are made in the same size, but when you face them, you can feel the scene of a fisherman accidentally meeting a mermaid on his way home from fishing. It is a product that conveys the beauty of Lisa Larson, which gives expression to a small statue.

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.
