LARS BERGSTRÖM

Lars himself built the kiln heated with eco-friendly rapeseed oil where he fires his salt-glazed stoneware. He throws big, generous dishes, reliable teapots and rustic mugs, often with detailed decoration and gold rims in his workshop in Karlshamn. The art of salt glazing is hard to master but for Lars the challenges and surprises it offers are part of its charm. Many years of experience and developing the central European tradition have now given Lars’ practical pieces an extraordinary quality.
