Artist and designer Ann Wåhlström designed the vase collection Iris for Svenskt Tenn in 2009, after which additional colours and sizes have been released. The collection is sprung from a need for classic, timeless and functional vases for every occasion. It has resulted in four vases that are all ideal for flowers and bouquets in different shapes and sizes.
Ann Wåhlström has substantial experience working with glass and is now situated in Stockholm, where she combines artistic work in glass with freelance design. She has studied at Capellagården in Öland, Sweden, at the Glass School in Orrefors, at Pilchuck School outside of Seattle, at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence and at Stockholm School of Art, Crafts and Design (Konstfack). Her aesthetic is often playful and imaginative, either with strong colours and decorative glass details, or with a faded colour palette and grey hues, something that is primarily seen in her more recent work.
