Carl-Harry Stålhane (1920-1990) was a prominent Swedish ceramist of international acclaim for the unique hand-built stoneware and industrial tableware that he produced throughout the 20th century. Stålhane enjoyed a 40-year career at Rörstrand ceramics and established his own workshop, Designhuset, where he created experimental ceramics from 1973 onwards.
Gunnar Nylund (1904-1997) was a Danish ceramist active both in Sweden and Denmark. Nylund worked across multiple media, including glass and metal, but he is well known for the industrial tableware, unique sculptures in chamotte, and his specially developed glazes that he produced throughout his career at Rörstrand Potteries, where he was the artistic director.
Ewald Dahlskog (1894–1950) was one of Sweden’s leading ceramic artists in the 20th century. After his art studies at ”Konstfack” in Stockholm and early work years at Kosta Boda, he worked for the Bo Fajans factory for more than 20 years. Ewald was a prominent designer of high-quality pottery with geometric shapes and relief surfaces. His artistry is represented at the Swedish National Museum of Art and Design.
