Dale Karlsson

With a background as a professional potter at Stenkärlsfabriken in Höganäs, Dale is both a potter and a ceramic artist. In his work he continues the East Asian stoneware tradition with reduction-fired glazes introduced in Europe by Bernard Leach, among others. The glazed surfaces of his powerful but elegant urns and vases exude depth and life, fully expressing Dale’s long experience and mastery in his field.
