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. Inspiration for Wåhlström comes from many sources; nature, ancient architecture and children’s book illustration, she cites Moomin creator Tove Jansson as a huge influence.
Wåhlström has also taught at Pilchuck Glass School in the USA and at the Beckman’s School of Design in Stockholm, Sweden. Her work can be found in many major museums including: the permanent collections of the V&A, the Corning Museum of Glass (New York), Ebeltoft Glasmuseum (Denmark), The Montreal Museum of Decorative Arts (Canada), the Art Gallery of Western Australia (Australia), Småland, Växjö, Sweden National museum and the Museum of Glass (USA).
