Details and Condition: A Studio Vase with thickly applied green and iron glazes with geometric patterns. The Vase is marked to base incised R with three crowns, CHS and Atelje as well as Sweden. Atelje is often referred to a “semi” unique pieces often made in 25-50 pieces only. During the 1960's, Stålhane.began to move away from the monochromatic, matte vessels of slender form and began designing heavier pieces with thickly applied glazes and incised decorations like this piece which has a wonderful rustic quality. Trained as a painter and sculptor, Stålhane joined Rörstand as a decorator in 1939 but was soon promoted to artistic director and chief designer. His stoneware was initially based on the technical and chemical foundation established by Gunnar Nylund, but later he developed a style of his own finding inspiration in Asian-inspired designs and glazes and constructivist art and he became one of the leading proponents of the biomorphic ideal executed in stoneware. The 1950’s brought major successes in his career with solo exhibitions in Sweden, UK and the US and a gold medal at the Milan Triennale in 1954. Stålhane left Rörstrand in 1973 to form his own studio, Designhuset. Today his works are in the collections at the National Museum, Stockholm, Industrial Arts Museum in Copenhagen, and the New York Museum of Modern Art.
