On my journey back into the design world after 12 or so years in a non design related job, I find inspiration lurking in every corner. It was always there of course, I just think my eyes were closed to it.
I have a few pieces of vintage Figgjo pottery - the market design. I love the design, it makes me wonder what the story was that inspired it. I think about the ladies going to the fish market and what their lives were like in comparrison to the fisherman - they look quite fancy, don't they:
Figgjo also produced a design called Lotte in blues, which I also love. I don't own any of it though (yet!):
When looking for information on Figgjo, I found this lovely blog. If you like vintage pottery/ceramics, then you'll like this.
