Stig Lindberg's highly individual ceramics are one of the many great successes of Sweden's homewares industry of the mid-20th Century. 

Produced by Sweden's foremost ceramics manufacturer, Gustavsberg, Lindberg's works reflect the charming and eccentric characteristics of the designer himself and, because of this, have experienced continued popularity from the start. 

Lindberg is perhaps most famous for his brightly painted Faience designs of the 1950's. The next decade however, was met with experimentations with surface texture and the use of intricate glazes in an elegant, earthy palette. This series of objects are Lindberg at his most refined, and whilst the vases & footed dishes do not rely on bright colours or characterful illustrations, they manage to retain Lindberg's distinctive charm and quirkiness in their informal-yet-elegant unexpected forms.

This unique footed dish features a rich tar-like glaze, from which an underlayer of light olive green emerges in a chequered pattern. The design was impressed into the wet clay before firing, and the pattern is repeated, subtly, on the inside wall. 

The unexpectedly masculine form is enhanced by the textured surface and features a short, swooping stem and exaggerated foot. The object's proportions and tactile form are a tangible example of Lindberg's intrinsic appeal.
