Cathrineholm Ceramics

June 8, 2012 § 1 Comment

I mentioned this retro Scandinavian leaf-patterned series a while back. Finally, thanks to Randi, I found what it’s called: Cathrineholm. The design is by Grete Prytz Kittelsen, a renowned Norwegian goldsmith, enamel artist, and designer.

Sounds like this series is called the Lotus.

Found at Tandem Antiques and Design. If you’re interested in this series, please go and have a look at Hilary’s post; she did some research.

Not only is there a huge range of vintage products (only available of re-sell sites like eBay and Etsy, though). There also seems to be a loyal fan base made of people who create new things based on the design. Etsy is chock full of fantastic art, cards, hats(!), pillows, and other housewares. Take a look:

Etsy sellers inspired by the Cathrineholm pattern. Clockwise from top left: Eline Oftedal, Regan Saunders, yumalum, Liz Lyons, thewildplum, and Simply Gifts.

Looking into Cathrineholm started as a curiosity after spotting items in several Nordic blogs. I came away really impressed by both Grete Kittelsen and the Etsy artisans!

(Note: I do not not publish sponsored content, or accept gifts or discounts to write about products. Blog posts are based on my personal opinion.)
