Sylvia Leuchovius Mid century Ceramist

September 6, 2021

Sylvia Leuchovius (1915–2003) was one of Sweden’s leading ceramic artists in the 20th century.

She was part of the Nordic design tradition aiming for warm-hearted, humorous, and sometimes subtly ironic design.

After her studies at ”School of Design and Crafts” in Gothenburg, Sylvia worked for the Rörstrand factory for more than 20 years.

She became a prominent designer of figurines, wall plaques, and tableware – often with stylistic animal or plant motifs.

Sylvia’s artistry is represented at the Swedish National Museum of Art and Design.

Such a fun and quirky style.
