hans hedberg Empty Yellow bottle vase, signed - Hans Hedberg, Sweden

Post by NaomiM June 21st 2012, 12:20 am

Picked this up at an antiques shop near Farnham. Because of the numbered sticker on the base I suspect it's by a amateur potter who's had a display at a local art & craft fair, but I'd be grateful if anyone can read the signature

I think it's supposed to be this way up -

I'd be inclined to think it says "Italy".

Interesting suggestions. Not sure it says Italy on the base, and it's a dark grey/black ground which I don't think is common for italian pottery.

I was hoping it was W German, but, again, I can't see 'Fohr' in the word written on the base. And wouldn't it have the numbers that are commonly stamped on the base of W German pots rather than just a word and a sticker?

I think the jury's still out on this one.

Finally found it. Came across a similar one by accident while looking for something else.  

It's a faience vase by Hans Hedberg, Sweden (1917-2007)

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/175077504238966036/

Can anyone translate the following?:

Hans Hedberg, Sweden (1917-2007)

Målaren och keramikern Hans Hedberg drev från 1949 egen verkstad med gasugn i Biot på franska rivieran. Han studerade i Faenza i Italien 1947-48 och arbetade med ett obundet formspråk med olika glasyrer. Till en början arbetade han mest med brukskeramik men har senare blivit känd för sina utsökta skulpturer, främst frukter och ägg i ett högbränt lergods i olika storlekar, från små ägg upp till en meter höga trädgårdsskulpturer. Med inspiration från naturen experimenterade han ständigt med nya glasyrer, där glasyren också fick bestämma formen

The painter and ceramist Hans Hedberg ran from 1949 own workshop with gas oven in Biot on the French Riviera. He studied at Faenza in Italy in 1947-48 and worked with an unbound form language with different glazes. At first, he worked mostly with pottery but has later become known for its exquisite sculptures, mainly fruits and eggs in a high-fired earthenware in different sizes, from small eggs up to one meter high garden sculptures. Taking inspiration from nature, he experimented constantly with new glazes, where the glaze also got to decide the shape

I don't know why that makes me laugh but it does. I love his sponge and his apples, but definitely wouldn't have room for a big one.
