Anders Wissler


Anders Henrik Wissler (1869-1941), a distinguished Swedish sculptor, graphic designer, and ceramicist, he was born in Linköping and pursued his education in Stockholm. His artistic journey gained momentum under the mentorship of sculptor Axel Notini. It was during this period that he encountered Berta 'Bess' Emilia Östrand, who would later become his wife. Together, they established Wissler Keramik in 1909. Among Wissler's notable commissions is "Thor's Fishing," a commanding piece that adorns Adolf Fredriks square, now known as Mariatorget, in Stockholm. His legacy is cemented by the inclusion of his works in prestigious collections, including the National Museum in Stockholm and the Museum of Cultural History in Lund, showcasing his lasting impact on Swedish art and culture.
