The Carrara glaze was developed by Wilhelm Kåge for Gustavsberg in the 1930s. It is a flint porcelain with a highly calcined glaze which was first shown at exhibitions in Malmö and Copenhagen in 1930. To our knowledge the name “Carrara” comes from the Tuscan town Carrara known for its white marble, probably visited by Kåge during a European trip in 1921.
