About us

Coal and clay are the foundations of Höganäs’s modern history. In the 18th century this was a place for farmers and fishermen, not potters. This changed with industrialism and with coal and clay mining Höganäs became the heart of Swedish pottery. Nowhere in Sweden does the passion for pottery run deeper than here.

The local potteries, household goods, fine pottery and craftsmen have influenced generations. Pottery put food on the table and Höganäs on the global map. There were Höganäs items in every home and relatives who have worked with clay.
The Höganäs Feeling, a pride and love for the craft, is always present.

Höganäs museum opened in 1925 on the initiative of Albin Hamberg, potter and teacher. The local potters have been engaged in the museum ever since.
