About this Item

The epitome of modern design of the highest caliber, this is Karin BjÜrquist. Her impressive career before, during and after Gustavsberg includes collaborating with Vilhelm Kîge, winning the Lunning Prize, and holding commissions for Nordiska Kompaniet?s exhibition and the NK exhibition both in 1957. Her noteworthy repertoire includes Danish inspired functional stoneware as well as many dinnerware patterns, still in production today. They are known for their superb functional simplicity and for their perfect shape and size. Karin?s blue speckled design for fireplaces and industrial installations are typical of her monumental work from the 60?s and the 70?s at which time she started to experiment in her studio creating wonderful rich glazes and characteristic functional ware. In the 90?s she has created unique designs for the Pro Arte collection for RÜrstrand; needless to say Karin?s accomplishments have greatly impacted the history of Swedish design., Swedish/ English captions and summary, Year1995, Illust.
