figgjo

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.

I love that! It's so lovely, but not so precious that I wouldn't want to use it, which is just as it should be I think.

Oh, I love it! I'll be on the lookout for Figgjo everywhere now. I seem to be in a vintage Pyrex thing at the moment and am building up a very nice collection. In fact, I've told Mr Moog he needs to get moving and organise a nice new kitchen extension as soon as is humanly possible as I'm running out of cupboard space!
