  • Ludvig Löfgren has extended his circle of friends with two new pals. The monkey called Shock the Monkey, the gorilla Gabba Gabba Hey and the cobra Luminous Fangs are joined by a wild elephant with flapping ears, Abulabbas, and a small, sly monkey, Rudie. Both sculptures are hand-made by skilled glass blowers at Åfors Glassworks.
    Ludvig Löfgren"My approach to glass is sensitive, passionate and patient. I describe atmosphere, depict moods through references both to history and present. Molten glass enables me to work with sculpture and pictures simultaneously. Glass can be seductive, beautiful, soft and compliant to work with. But at same time it can scar you for life."

    Before enrolling at the University College of Arts Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Ludvig Löfgren worked as a glass blower, an experience that gave him both perspective and understanding of glass. His constant search for challenges often results in hours of experimenting, both in the studio and in the hotshop. With his substantial knowledge of glass and artistic talent, he shatters many limits in the Kingdom of Crystal with its fine traditions.

    Ludvig Löfgren gathers inspiration from many different genres, including everything from the fashion world to tattooing techniques. His artistic expression is youthful and filled with attitude, but at the same time it is brutally conscious. His first limited edition skull Vanitas Disco has already attracted a new target group to Kosta Boda.
