The Jobs sisters - Ceramics and Textiles

February 23 - June 2, 2019

The two sisters Lisbet and Gocken Jobs created ceramics and textiles that made Swedish homes blossom during the post-war period. Wild flower bouquets covers ceramic dishes and tiles while lingon- and blueberries are arranged into decorative patterns applied onto hand printed textiles. Folk culture with midsummer celebrations, people cheering and musicians playing are also found among the Jobs sisters’ motives. Their elaborated design became a source of inspiration for many generations to come and was rooted in vast knowledge on crafts and folk art traditions based in Dalarna. The forces of nature and the dramatic vegetation of the local landscape, the greenery and the shifting seasons were absorbed by the two sisters and transformed into tablecloths, curtains, bowls and tile trays that would decorate the idea of the Swedish society as a home for its’ people.
