|"I have always been fascinated by the decorative: by the symmetries of nature and life. By patterns. Intuition is central to my creativity. I like to call it the intellect of the hand. Glass encloses a mental space in a spectrum of colour and transparency, direct, immediate yet ineffable."|
Strong stylised patterns, organic decorations and playful, almost naïve, subjects, are distinguishing characteristics of Olle Brozén's designs. He gained inspiration from working as a glassblower in Japan, and the influence of Japanese woodcuts is clearly visible in his first sketches for Kosta Boda: a series of patterns inspired by nature. Brozén has attracted attention with his simple, powerful shapes that give free rein to his expressive patterns and decorations.
