Gocken Jobs

Gocken Jobs (1914-1995) was a Swedish ceramisist and textile designer. While her sister Lisskulla Jobs was an actress, her other sister Lisbet Jobs was also a ceramisist and textile designer. Together they exhibited their ceramics at the World Expo in Paris in 1937, in New York in 1939, and at the Golden Gate Exhibition in San Francisco in 1938. Due to a shortage of ceramic glaze during WWII, their brother Peer Jobs who run a textile company transfered their designs onto textiles. Their breakthrough came with an exhibition in 1945 at the prestigious Stockholm department store NK, entitled 'When Beauty Came To The Village'. At Skandium, the most popular Gocken Jobs textile is 'Rhubarb' from 1969.
