Ceramist, glass artist and designer Carina Seth Andersson studied ceramics and glass at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm. Her work is in a number of museums and institutions, including the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. She was a teacher at Beckmans College of Design, but today devotes her time to various design assignments.
Among other things, Carina Seth Andersson has designed vases for Svenskt Tenn. She was inspired by the exotic objects that Estrid Ericson had taken home from her travels. Carina contemplated the exotic in Scandinavian nature and was inspired by the winding forest roads, one early summer morning and northern melancholy, dewdrops, clearings filled with tree stumps and all the cones on the path.
You don’t need to flip through Swedish interior design magazines for long before you find the round glass vase with characteristic dewdrops. The vase is blown in a graphite mold at Skruf Glassworks in Småland, Sweden. The specific form of the vase requires enormous precision from the glassblower. Occasional bubbles can occur in the glass. This is a sign of real craftsmanship and should be seen as a friendly greeting from the glassblower to you.
