Signe Persson-Melin is undoubtedly one of Sweden's most valuable potters. Despite being 90 years of age, she has no plans to stop creating as her love for the clay is too encompassing.

The Swedish designer Signe Persson-Melin showed early interest in clay design and interrupted her schooling to work at a pottery factory. She later graduated from the College of Arts in Stockholm to return a few decades later as Sweden's first professor of glass and ceramics. Her major breakthrough came at the Helsingborg exhibition in 1955 where she introduced a collection of ceramic spice jars covered with a tin glaze. This was something brand new and they were received with open arms to become an immediate success.

Since then, Signe Persson-Melin has designed everything from flower pots to public ornaments. She is best known for her everyday items, not least the teaspoons that have become a bit of Signe Persson-Melin's special. She has an incredible ability to combine shape with function and always creates products according to the needs of the time. It is certainly clear that without Signe Persson-Melin, Swedish cuisine would have looked very different.
