ABOUT THE POTTERY

Törngrens Pottery was established in Falkenberg, Sweden by Hans Törngren 1789. During the latter part of the 18th century and all of the 19th a thriving pottery industry flourished in Falkenberg. It has been 21 different potteries in town. Today only Törngrens remains from those times.

The methods of decoration used in Falkenbergs pottery were sometimes simple "sliptrailing"used a goose-quill pen or an animal horn to trail a pattern of white liquid clay (slip) on to the red-brown clay of the pot and other times "sgraffito" or "painting" where the whole red earthenware item was dipped in white slip and decoration scratched into or painted onto the surface.

Törngrens Krukmakeri have still their own decorative patterns "TÖRNGRENS-MÖNSTRET" designed by Hans Törngren 1789 the man who started Törngren's Pottery.
