Aby-a-Day – December 18: Lisa Larson cats (Fashion Friday)

Ever since my first trip to visit Björn, I have been in love with Lisa Larson’s cats.

Lisa Larson is a Swedish ceramic designer who as been working since the early 1950’s. She’s especially well known for her distinctive cat designs.

Björn took me to Design Torget in Stockholm’s Central Station and what do you think I found? A Lisa Larson cat wooden cutting board/trivet! I told Björn I thought it looked a bit like an Aby…I mean, look at the banding! This is obviously a ticked cat!

I find it amazing that, even though Lisa Larson started in 1954, she’s still active today, making new cat designs.
