Enamel designer Grete Prytz Kittelsen (Norway, 1917-2010)
Granddaughter of the great Norwegian designer Jacob Tostrup, born in Oslo and was educated in Paris as well as the Art Institute in Chicago. Renowned and awarded for her many works with stainless steel and silver. Today probably best known for the Lotus series for Cathrineholm. Ironically, Grete Prytz did not design the Lotus pattern herself, but rather fought the factory against using it. But the local housewives liked it, so it stayed... Grete and her ex-husband Arne Korsmo were a major factor in the rise in popularity of Scandinavian Modern design in the 1940s and onward.
