Gocken Jobs, Rabarber, 1968

The two sisters Lisbet and Gocken Jobs created ceramics and textiles that made Swedish homes blossom during the post-war period. Wild flower bouquets covers ceramic dishes and tiles while lingon- and blueberries are arranged into decorative patterns applied onto hand printed textiles. Folk culture with midsummer celebrations, people cheering and musicians playing are also found among the Jobs sisters’ motives.
