|"For me, creativity takes place in the blowing room. This is where glass is conceived, where it is fashioned and comes alive. I want to work with glass, not against it. In my designs, I try to follow along with the melt, with the sheer power of the glass, although I try at the same time to identify the simple and the subtle."|
An experimental and minimalistic stylist, Anna Ehrner’s work is distinguished by simple yet powerful shapes and an ability to achieve colourful displays using colour in subtle ways. Veils of colour inside the glass have become something of Anna Ehrner’s trademark, as have the lofty different coloured stalks that are characteristic of her art glass. She is also the originator of best-selling collections such as our Line glasses and the Contrast series of bowls.
