1950s to 1960s Swedish Vase by Marian Zawadski SOLD

Mid Century Vase by Marian Zadawski.



More Information

This is the largest example of this Mid-Century Modern vase, in excellent condition with no faults seen. Marian Zadawski was a Polish ceramicist (1912-1978). He developed a unique technique using sgrafitto which involved carving fine lines into the background of a design through a light coloured glaze and then onto a dark grey clay slip. This technique created a unique textured background which became synonymous with the Swedish Tilgman Keramik style. The decorative areas are also outlined with a carved line and then hand painted with overglazes. Flowers, butterflies, fish and birds often feature in the designs. Other potteries copied the style as it was very sought after.

Plastic-free, recyclable/compostable packaging and carbon-offset.
