Hannah Hansdotter has emerged as one of our most interesting glass artists of today. She is based in her studios in Kosta and Boda and has participated in a variety of exhibitions. After training in a region in Sweden, dubbed the Kingdom of Crystal, she headed to art school, where she experimented with blowing molten glass into industrial iron frameworks. She draws upon traditional Scandinavian craft techniques to create lustrous blown glass objects with bulging, oozing forms that feel both otherworldly and frozen in time. Hansdotter's work involves blowing molten glass into frames to create pieces that ooze and bulge through the gaps. These ad hoc molds serve to imprint patterned, almost alien surfaces onto her vessels, as the glass bulged and oozed through openings. Hansdotter´s works deal with the balance of design and decay. A status where the thoughts of the past, anticipation and hope is illustrated in the aesthetic between beautiful and brutal. The vases are individually mouth blown and painted, although they go through the same production process, each comes out in a unique way.
Hanna Hansdotter (b. 1984) is based in Kosta and Boda, in Sweden’s “Kingdom of Crystal.” Drawing on the region’s traditional techniques, her blown glass objects are made to swell between individually shaped iron mills, classical craft processes leading to unexpected results. Her work has been exhibited at Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles, CFHILL and Steinsland Berliner Gallery in Stockholm, and is represented in the National Museum Collection in Stockholm. She was also the recipient of the prestigious Åke Andrén grant in Sweden in 2020. This is her first New York exhibition.
