Kiln cast sculptures made in sandmoulds

2003 Pilchuck Glass School, Seattle, USA

I do all my work together with Karin Westman, we live and work in the west of Sweden close to the Norwegian border.


The last 10 years they have been working exclusivly with glass, which brought them out on several high-profile exhibitions in the U.S., Japan and Europe.

In Europe they are represented in many leading galleries.

The inspiration that can be seen in the kiln cast glass sculptures come from a life-long internal and external travel.

From Bali's lush cultivated terraces to the mountains of Spitzbergen harsh polar climate, from the ancient Maya temples to Japan's high-tech speed.
