Ewald Dahlskog

Ewald Dahlskog (1894-1950) was one of Sweden’s leading artists in the 20th century. After his Art studies at “Konstfack” in Stockholm, he worked at Kosta from 1926 to 1929 during which time he radically transformed the production of art glass, using cut decoration in a new vigorous modern aesthetic. Then he decided to leave the glass industry to focus on ceramics.

From 1929 until 1950 he worked as the artistic director at Bo Fajans (Bobergs Fajansfabrik AB) where he explored avant-garde methods like geometric shapes and relief surfaces. Dahlskog is also known for his watercolors of North Africa and Italy landscapes, where he often traveled.
