Berndt Friberg was a renowned Swedish stoneware artist. He began working for Gustavsberg in 1934 and eventually developed a reputation as the master of Chinese inspired modern ceramics. He worked at the Gustavsberg factory until his death in 1981. Friberg hand-threw many of his own pieces but also produced a series of designs that were made in small production runs by the Gustavsberg studio in the 1950s and 60s. His works are rare and collectible and remain in high demand.
Gustavsberg is a Swedish porcelain company that originated in 1826 and continued production until it broke up in the 1990s.
