Sven Wejsfelt 1930-2009 Sven Wejsfelt (Sven Johansson) artist and ceramicist. Born in Lidköping on 29 October 1930. Sven Wejsfelt already worked as a teenager as a porcelain painter and turner at Rörstrand for, among others, Carl Harry Stålhane and Gunnar Nylund. In 1952, Rörstrand sent him on a study and internship trip to Italy Sven Wejsfelt moved to Gustavsberg and started working at the Gusavsberg factory in 1953. Sven Wejsfelt became Stig Lindberg's right-hand man. He toured and signed plays. Also made models for serially produced goods for Gustavsbergs Porslinsfabrik. After Stig Lindberg left Gustavsberg in 1970 , Sven became more independent and began to manufacture self-turned goods. Among other things, the Stim series, lifelike stoneware fish. On this occasion he changed his name from Johansson to Wejsfelt to stand out from the crowd as Johansson was a common name at the factory. After the break-up, Sven became head of the art department. Sven now had his own Attalje and continued to work at the factory until 1993 when the porcelain production was shut down. Sven continued to work in his company in the old factory premises until 2007 His work is reproduced in several museums around the world. Sven Wejsfelt was one of Sweden's leading turners and glaze makers. Unfortunately far too underrated at the moment. The last exhibition was a memorial exhibition in 2009 at the porcelain museum after he had passed away.
