Winterland Lena, A Scandinavian Scene

3rd October - 30th November 2008

Back for the third time in its ten year history, Vessel Gallery is proud to present new works by one of Sweden's greatest creatives, Lena Bergström. This talented glass and textile designer has won no less than 15 Swedish Design Excellence awards, and has her work in Stockholm's National Museum and London's V&A Museum.

Bergström is one of Sweden’s best-known glass designers. She followed a diverse training from window dressing to studying textiles at Stockholm’s prestigious Konstfack school, initially achieving fame for outstanding textile art before being head hunted by Orrefors, Sweden’s most famous crystal company. In her own words, she likes soft glass and hard textiles – her textiles often have a clear graphic expression, while her glass designs are more organic. Of her glass, focus & elegance; dramatic sharp graphic shapes; fluid & sensuous curves - just some of the words that spring to mind when looking at the work.
