Stoneware bowl with a mustard coloured glossy glaze, from the Chamotte series by Gunnar Nylund för Swedish Rörstrand, mid-20th century. The white clay is grogged - chamotted, mixed with small shards of already burnt clay. Originally, grogging was a method to make the clay body stronger. From the 1940’s and onwards Nylund and other ceramists used grogging as part of their designs, to enhance the surfaces of the functionalist shapes. Impressed mark Rörstrand Sverige (Sweden) Chamotte Nylund. Width: “6/ 15 cm, height: “1¾ / 4 cm. Condition: some wear to the well (cf. pics).
