Tall Bottle-Form Vase by Stig Lindberg

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This stoneware vase was made by Stig Lindberg in 1960, when he was at the very height of his powers. The tall bottle form is decorated with the incised marks so characteristic of Stig Lindberg's studio work. These marks serve to catch the running glaze, creating a satisfyingly complex surface texture, as well as making the piece feel good in the hand. Large studio pieces by Stig Lindberg have become quite scarce and this one is in perfect condition.
