Åke Holm (1900-80) was an artist and ceramicist based at Hoganas, Sweden. He often used biblical themes in his work but with a distinct modernist styling. His work is starting to get the recognition it deserves for its distinctive style. His monumetal stoneware sculptures of figures from the Bible as well as his wall plaques are now recognisd as some of the finest ceramics produced in Sweden in the second half of the Twentieth Century. There is a museum in Hoganas, Sweden that holds a large collection of his work donated by the artist.
