Short biography
Algot Wilhelm Kåge

Born in Sweden 1889 - died 1960.
Originally a painter, Kåge studied decorative painting at Tekniska skolan in Stockholm and later for the painter Carl W. Wilhelmson in Gothenburg, Johan Rodhe in Copenhagen and at Plakatschule in Munich, where he learned graphic techniques. His early career was dedicated to advertising and the production of posters, but his best known work was in ceramics. He was employed by Gustavsberg and in 1917 was appointed artistic director to rejuvenate the pottery´s production.
He remained there until 1949, mentoring among others the world famous Swedish ceramicist STIG LINDBERG who later succeeded him. He was faithful to the company for 32 years. In 1942 he started the legendary Gustavsberg Studio with the mission to create unique artistic pieces. His lively imagination brought forth a great variety of forms. Kåge was an artist of contradictions. In the 1940´s and 50´s he designed several geometrical, almost cubist, vessels in the 'Surrea' series which stands in striking contrast to his soft formed, organic shaped tableware from the same period. Kåge designed more than 30 different dinner services & of particular importance was 'Praktika', the inexpensive 'workers' service, intended for a wider audience. Kåge´s pride, however, was the 'Farsta' series of unique vessels made of heavy stoneware with carved surfaces and earth coloured decorative glazes. The clay for which was taken from the Farsta bay area very near the Gustavsberg pottery. He began experimenting with the Farsta line of studio ceramics already in the 1920´s. Art historians and collectors today consider the Farsta pieces the culmination of Wilhelm Kåge´s artistic production.

Kåge's most commercially successful design was the mottled Emerald Green/deep turquoise-glazed stoneware, ARGENTA, with decorations applied using a thick layer of sterling silver that was produced in many shapes.
