Item Description

Marta Maas Fjatterstorm ( Märta Måås Fjetterström ) was one of the foremost central figures in Mid Century Swedish Woven / Textile Art. She placed high importance on quality and execution of the designs with the idea that one could experience first hand a vision of nature with each line and every form. With her vision guiding every single line, choice of colors, patterns and attention to detail it is no wonder why her works are viewed as truly great works of art and treasured by collectors, dealers and private consumers from all four corners of the world. She opened her workshop in 1919 in the beautiful coastal town of Bastad Switzerland and continued running it until her death in 1941 at the age of 68. The factory was moved in 1948 from her original location named "Strandgården" to a house that was designed by the architects Ivan & Andres Tengbom where it still resides today. Her works can be found in many museums such as: The Victoria & Albert Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art , The Louvre, Trondheim's Museum in Norway, The National museum (located in Stockholm), The Röhsska Museum of Design and Decorative Arts in Gothenburg, Nordiska museet (Stockholm) and many others.

Märta Måås-Fjetterström at Deconet

Märta Måås-Fjetterström Märta Måås-Fjetterström started her own textile studio in Båstad, Sweden in 1919 after years as manager of a weaving school run by the Swedish Handicraft Association. She drew designs for rugs and curtains which were woven by women in the district. Originally she worked in a romantic and nationalistic tradition with elements of art nouveau design. But her contacts with folk art in Southern Sweden and her study of Oriental rugs helped her to develop a style of her own that was unique in the world. Her designs are based on native Swedish and Oriental textile traditions combined with a skilled eye for natural forms. Like the great Swedish botanist Linnaeus she studied flowers and leaves in detail, while the occasional horse or sheep also finds its way into her designs, giving a special rhythm to the patterns. In 1934, when she had passed her sixtieth year, she made her definitive breakthrough among Sweden's art critics with a major exhibition at the Liljevalch art gallery in Stockholm. Today, Märta Måås-Fjetterström's works are found in the world's leading museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Louvre in Paris and the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.
