Designed by Ragnar Grimsrud Scandinavian Design Norway Mid Century
Ragnar Grimsrud (1902-1988) designed the Sissel tableware in 1954 for Figgjo AS (Norway). In addition to Sissel, he designed form and pattern for at least two other Figgjo dinner services: Grete and Benta (both 1951). The story goes that these were named after his three daughters, Sissel being the oldest. The service was produced in 8 coulours. These pieces are in a kind of mint green (grønn). Other popular coulours were blue (blå) and yellow (gul). On rare occasions I saw a darker green, beige, pink and even white pieces.

Ragnar Grimsrud: a short biography
Ragnar Grimsrud (12 September 1902 – 11 December 1988) is considered one of the most gifted Norwegian ceramists. His artistic education consisted of a period of drawing and painting with painter Torleif Rud in Minnesund (1920-1924) and graphic lessons in Oslo at the Statens håndverks- og kunstindustriskole (1924-1925). As a ceramist, Grimsrud was self-educated.
In 1925 he started his own ceramics workshop in Minnesund and worked there until it was destroyed by fire in 1928. Subsequently he started working at A/S Graverens Teglverk as artistic director. Apart from a short break around 1933-34 when he worked at the Egersund Fayancefabrik, Grimsrud was leading the ceramics department at Graverens until 1946.
At this time he started at A/S Figgjo Kraftselskap in Sandnes, later Figgjo Fajanse (1949), where he designed most of the products from the ’50s and ’60s Figgjo became known for. Including the popular Grete (1951), Sissel (1954) and Figgjo 35 (1961) tableware. When Figgjo Fajanse merged with Stavangerflintin in 1968, and from then on went by the name of Figgjo A/S, Grimsrud became artistic director and product development manager for both factories.
He remained active at Figgjo until his retirement in 1973.
