I'm so intrigued by Egersund pottery. Being founded in 1847, they've been around 100 years longer than the two other famous potteries in the region, Figgjo and Stavangerflint (both companies started in the 1940s), and "cover" a longer span of design history, including art nouveau and art deco, which were both amazing periods. Egersund has an rich history of shipping, which, in turn, led to periods of affluence. The Egersund fayance museum has some enormous art nouveau vases that, I imagine, must come from some wealthy shipowners' homes. The history of Stavangerflint and Figgjo is very different, but no less interesting, they've been suppliers of everyday objects to the post- war households.
This Saturday, I'll be going away for Easter. I'm not sure if I'll have internet access, there just might be some "radio silence"! In the meantime, enjoy the holidays, happy Easter!
