Anna Ehrner

Anna Ehrner, born 1948 in Danderyd in Stockholm, is both a designer and glass artist who’s characterized by her simple design language. With an experimental expression, she has an ability to create effectful pieces with only a little color, where lines of color inside the glass has become a recurring feature. Her creations are often born out of the glass itself, together with inspiration from nature.

Anna has worked with Kosta Boda since 1974. Before then, she studied ceramics at the University of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack), where she’s also been teaching later on in life. She’s the designer behind several successful collections at Kosta Boda, such as Contrast and Line - where the latter is one of Sweden’s most sold tableware of all time. She has been awarded with the Excellent Swedish Form award in 1992 and 1994 for her design, and became the winner of Swedish Glass in 1983.

“For me, creativity emerges in the blowing room. This is where the glass is conceived, where it's fashioned and comes alive. I want to work with the glass, not against it. In my designs, I try to follow along with the melted glass, with the sheer power, although I try at the same time to identify the simple and subtle.” – Anna Ehrner
