Gunnar Nylund was a Danish ceramist active both in Sweden and Denmark. Nylund worked across multiple media, including glass and metal, but he is well known for the industrial tableware, unique sculptures in chamotte, and his specially developed glazes that he produced throughout his career at Rörstrand Potteries, where he was the artistic director.

Carl-Harry Stålhane was a prominent Swedish ceramist of international acclaim for the unique hand-built stoneware and industrial tableware that he produced throughout the 20th century. Stålhane enjoyed a 40-year career at Rörstrand ceramics and established his own workshop, Designhuset, where he created experimental ceramics from 1973 onwards. 

Berndt Friberg is one of Sweden's most distinguished ceramic artists and is recognized in particular for the depth of his specialized glazes and the precise execution of his immaculate hand-thrown forms. Friberg created his signature ceramics up until his death in 1981. His works were collected by King Carl Gustaf of Sweden, Yves Saint Laurent, and Robert Mapplethorpe, and his works are featured in a multitude of prestigious public collections.
