Figgjo Museum, Norway

Figgjo was founded in 1941, it is located and named after Figgjo, near Stavanger in Norway. It is best known for its mid-century modern ceramics decorated with colour and characters. Figgjo still trades and if you visit the factory there is a shop and small museum which displays some of its best vintage pieces. Today Figgjo’s mass produced ceramics lack the quirky originality but you can pick up some lovely one-off pieces such as the Sterke Striper hand painted collection.
