Frida Fjellman

Frida Fjellman

An attempt to capture the glass in motion, to depict how it appears in its warm form. Irregularity that has been created with the help of blow moulding. The result is a carafe that is a play on baroque and rococo. It visualises the possibility of drawing out, of compressing. Dare to exaggerate and go all out.

For the first time, Frida Fjellman, whose designs were previously often turned in wood, has produced a design entirely in glass. This table sculpture, to use as a vase or carafe, is designed to add something rather than blend into a table setting. The cork is shaped like rising smoke: a smoke signal and a nod to communication and conversation at the dinner table.

Frida Fjellman was born and raised in Mariestad, Sweden, and studied ceramics at Helliden Folk High School in Tidaholm and at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Her bold, colourful and sometimes radical expressions in glass, ceramics and other materials have triumphed in Sweden and internationally – not least in the US, where in recent years she has produced a number of prestigious public creations for clients such as Art Basel, Forbes and Four Seasons. Frida Fjellman’s work is represented at Sweden’s Nationalmuseum, Röhsska Museum and the Public Art Agency Sweden, as well as in private collections all over the world.
