Berndt Friberg's ceramics for Gustavsberg are some of the finest examples of wheel-thrown pottery of the 20th century. His stunning portfolio of work is characterised by intricate glazes, exquisite forms, and an unsurpassed level of skill & craftpersonship. 

This substantial vase was handmade by Friberg in 1969, and features a delicate brown-green gloss glaze which blankets the vase in a softly dappled pattern reminiscent of fur. The earthy glaze is gently varied with areas of red, rust-orange and black, alongside speckled areas of pale grey-green.

Like much of Friberg's work, the shape of this piece is inspired by ancient ceramics of the Far East; the squat, rotund form of this vase references antique Korean pottery. The spherical vase, like all of Friberg's ceramics, is beautifully proportioned and although quite large remains light in the hand, testament to Friberg's skill as a potter.
