In the contemporary press Stig Lindberg was depicted as a light-hearted comic, constantly creative, witty and impulsive. He created whimsical studio ceramics and graceful tableware lines during a long career with the Gustavsberg ceramic/porcelain factory in Sweden (1937-1982). The catalogue is filled with colorful illustrations that portray Lindberg’s fun and unique designs. The focus in this catalogue is also on the role of the artist, trade mark strategies and artistic copyright. Together, the catalogue’s four articles offer a description of how the collaboration of art and industry in the 20th century gave rise to effects other than the aesthetic ideals we normally associate with the concept of the Swedish art industry. The aim of these articles is to provide fuel for reflection and discussion about the role of art versus copyright protection.
