Gothenburg-based ceramicist Marianne Hallberg graduated from the University of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg in the early 1980s. She creates everyday objects decorated with playful, sketchy designs that appear to jump off of the flat surfaces of her pottery with distorted-looking forms. Her material is stoneware with a white tin glaze, decorated with cobalt oxide. She has always been interested in ornamentation studying flowers, exploring symbols, squares, dots, stripes and combines them like patchwork quilts. Her ceramics are sold all over the world but mostly to Sweden and Japan.
More of her work can be seen here in her Instagram page.
