Emerging from Christmas
My partner surprised me with the Figgjo book ("Formet av Entusiasme Gjennom 60 År: 1941-2001" (literal translation, hmmm: "Shaped by the Enthusiasm over 60 Years")), ordered by emailing the company store in Figgjo, Norway where we were last spring (quite resourceful of him, I thought). Our friend Lisa gave us our first piece in the Tor Viking pattern by Figgjo Flint, a fun casserole. The marks are under the lid, and the clay on the body is quite different so that it can be oven-safe.
Our Christmas china is the Winter Greetings pattern by Lenox (not Scandinavian!?) that we bought about 10 years ago. And our festive Christmas tablecloth this year is a Marimekko pattern called Taikamylly from Crate and Barrel.
