Along the wonderful coast line between Kalmar and Karlskrona, you will find many potteries. Just outside the village Torsås, the pottery oven has been glowing in four generations.
In 1888, B.G Johansson started the company. Mr. Johansson had learnt about the fantastic quality of clay in a nearby brickworks. He also went to Stockholm for studies in an art school.
Today, Torsås Fajans distribute mainly our own goods to companies, but, still, customers are coming to the pottery in Sunelycke to buy directly and sometimes to see the manufacturing. Many older visitors like to tell a story or a memory about Gunnar Brorsén.
Today I proudly continue my ancestors work and keep the pottery alive. I manufacture utility goods in stoneware, and, of course, the still very popular “Ginger bread pot” with its characteristic white décor.
