Figgjo “Sicilia”, Turi Gramstad Oliver

Figgjo Norway "Sicilia" - Turi Gramstad Oliver

This charming design is instantly recognisable as one by Turi Gramstad Oliver for Figgjo Norway.

The series is called “Sicilia”, and it was designed as a fruit set with 6 different plates (18.5cm) and a larger serving plate (about 30cm). The plates have a rounded square form used on some other series at Figgjo around the same time. The glaze being high gloss, adds to the design giving it a lovely tactile quality.

The outline of the design has been silkscreened, which was then finished with hand painting. 

Each of the 6 smaller plates has a male or female figure in a bucolic setting with fruit, and the larger plate has a design of the male and female figures together. 

Turi recalls it being made a long time after Lotte – probably some time in the early to mid 1970s.
