Berit Ternell Swedish Ceramist

March 14, 2022

Berit Ternell studied at the Handicraft Society School in Göteborg.

After graduation in 1950 she worked for a year as an intern for Upsala-Ekeby where her job included decorative painting of the studio ceramics by Ingrid Atterberg and Mari Simmulson.

Before being contracted by Gefle (Sweden) in 1957, she mainly worked for Bo Fajans (Sweden) but also for T.G. Green Pottery (England), Reijmyre Glassworks (Sweden) and Rörstrand (Sweden).

At Gefle she stayed for 14 years designing, the popular ‘Kosmos’ service (1966) in blue & brown, the ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Smide’ tableware, the vases Trio en Reactor and many, may more.

In 1971 she left Gefle and returns to Göteborg where she teaches art at the ‘Högskolan för Design och Konsthantverk’ (HDK), a department of the Arts faculty at the Göteborg University, until her retirement in 1974.

A wonderful collection of well designed ceramics wouldn’t you say !
