This is a ceramic plate called the UNIK series created in 1967 by Lisa Larsson, a representative Swedish potter. Lisa Larson designed nine ceramic plates that year, including cats, birds, horses, elephants, and more. This is a drawing of a round cat seen from the front. Each ceramic plate was handmade one by one at Gustavsberg's atelier called G Studio in the capital Stockholm.

The UNIK series has two types of ceramic plates: a sitting cat and a round cat, and this one is the latter. It is a depiction of a cat from the front, and is notable for its strong fur, similar to a lion's mane. The front legs are carefully lined up, and the cuteness of sitting a little is also expressed in a Lisa Larson style. This is one of Lisa Larson's ceramic plates, which is one of the representative works in the UNIK series and has the highest reputation.

However, this is a black round cat that is not listed in the catalog. It is extremely rare with a special color pattern called a unique piece. The construction on the back is quite unusual, as it has wires passed through both holes instead of the usual tongue-shaped metal fittings. This item is extremely rare among the UNIK series, and due to its rarity, I don't think it will be available in the future.

Please refer to this product page for the regular UNIK series round cats.

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.
