  • Ingrid Atterberg (1920-2008) was born in the northern Sweden city of Harnosand. She studied at Slojdforeningens School in Gothenburg. Ingrid came to the Upsala-Ekeby Pottery factory in 1944, staying on until 1964. She became one of the foremost Swedish designers of the period.

    Ingrid constantly experimented with different glazes and techniques. She found the work process inspiring, and thought failures often gave birth to new ideas. Her austere, bold designs of ornamental pieces and everyday goods led to significant artistic and commercial success. During Ingrid’s time at Upsala-Ekeby, she produced over 100 series.

    Ingrid Atterberg designed the Inca series in the 1947 for Upsala–Ekeby. It consists of 23 objects with gently swelling shapes and linear, orange pattern.
