Designer

Gunnar Nylund (1904-1997) was a Swedish ceramicist, designer and sculptor. Gunnar Nylund was active for periods at Bing & Grøndahl, for a few years had his own workshop, Saxbo stentøj, and worked at Nymølle ceramic factory in Denmark. For most of his working life he lived in Sweden and was employed at Rörstrand porcelain factory 1931-59 where he was also assigned the role of artistic director. He has become known for his many different animal sculptures in stoneware, but he also made lots of vases, bowls, lamp bases, etc., as well as tableware and other utensils. Nylund also designed glass for Strömbergshyttan.

The demand for much of Gunnar Nylund's stoneware has increased in recent years, most sought after are early and unique large animal sculptures and large decorative vases with refined glazes. Even the rustic chamotte ware has received a greater demand, for example the spiky so-called 'hedgehog' vases.
