Glass Craft and Enamelling

I work in the village Karhuniemi, 3 km north of Kiruna. Having the forest around the corner and mountains in the background lets me find the calm and focus I need for my art. This is where I get the most inspiration, and new ideas. In my workshop I create designs using glass and enamelling on copper, where I focus on colour and shape, tactile structures, the play of light, effects and reflections.

I have been working with glass in my studio in Karhuniemi Kiruna since 1996.
With the mountains and the woods in the background I find new ideas and the inspiration I need to be creative.
The technique I use for my glas products is fusing and slumping, I also make cast glass in my own made molds. To get interesting structures i use molds of sand and plaster but also metal and concrete to get more effects.
The process requires several burnings and afterwork as grinding and blasting patterns.
2016/2017 I started working with enamelling which is a very interesting material, you will se more of that in the future.
