Ann Wåhlström, 1957 Sweden

In her career, Ann has designed wares for many a huge international company; glasses for the likes of Ikea and Kosta Boda, ceramics, metals and textiles for brands from Cappellini to Boda Nova, Wåhlström’s work is as varied in material as it is colour. Her strong aesthetic ties together her wide use of graphic lines and sweeping arcs whether applied to the flat surface of textiles or the fluid forms of glass. Wåhlström has also taught at Pilchuck Glass School in the USA and at the Beckman’s School of Design in Stockholm, Sweden. Her inspiration comes from nature, ancient architecture and children’s book illustration, she cites Moomin creator Tove Jansson as a huge influence.
