Gunner Nylund (1904 - 1997) was trained as an architect in Copenhagen in the 1920s, but his greatest influences were his mother, a Danish ceramicist, and his father, a Finnish sculptor. He honed his skills at the family studio and later opened his own workshop, Saxbo. After an exhibition at Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm in 1930, Nylund was discovered  by Rörstrand. He remained with the firm as one of its leading designers until 1958. Nylund created graceful, modernist pieces in richly glazed stoneware and in highly textured chamotte ware.
