Berndt Friberg stoneware vase with grey haresfur glaze. Signed to the base with mark in use on his pieces from 1944-47 (see our blog post on Friberg's mark for more details). A rare, early piece.
Excellent condition. No damage or flaws.
Berndt Friberg (1899-1981) is regarded by many as one the greatest ceramicists of the 20th Century. As a thrower he was unsurpassed. He started out as a thrower for other designers (notably Wilhelm Kåge at Gustavsberg) and only began signing his own work in 1938. After the success of his early exhibitions he became a designer in his own right. He designed, threw and glazed all his own pots. Every one is unique though he did use a range of shapes and types of glaze. Friberg’s work is now sought after worldwide and is in museums across the globe.
