Stig Lindberg Ceramic Plaques

The following is a selection of ceramic wall plaques from the multi-talented Swedish designer Stig Lindberg (1916-1982). Most of these pieces were created for Gustavsberg, where Lindberg began working in 1937 under Wilhelm Kåge (1889-1960). In 1948 Lindberg was named Kåge's successor as art director and remained at the helm for Gustavsberg until 1980.

Yeah, I know this is not a plaque, but I just had to include it.

WOW! This entire post is amazing.
I had no idea people made such large ceramics. The flowers on the buildings were incredible. As was the entire post. Am already a huge fan of S. Lindberg. His work was so consistently and deeply charming. Every piece had such personality, especially the faces!
I am thrilled to have found your blog. I will be spending time here often. Thank you for opening my eyes to a broader spectrum of beautiful art and craft. Betty
