Aurora– A series by Kjell Engman
Aurora is a collection that exudes the passion of craftsmanship – an elegant organic shape that culminates in an unfurled flower. The centre of the form is decorated with small rock crystals. To create a more attractive, more exciting space that communicates something heartfelt. The vases are more than just vases, they aim to create sculptures that do not need to hold flowers in order to flourish. All in all, wonderful pieces to have on display.
"In creating a design, I start with the circle of life. I like to make glass you can feel, glass that appeals to all of our senses and tries to make use of refraction and light. I want to paint pictures and tell stories all at the same time. What drives me, is a sort of inner search, in which curiosity, the mysterious and mythology are all important ingredients. Glass, the living solid, is my constant companion."
A tirelessly productive visual artist with unbounded imagination and a passion for narrative, who finds free expression through both utility glass and art glass. Kjell Engman gets his inspiration from the most diverse sources, not least from the animal kingdom and the world of music and entertainment. He often works on large installations in which he also combines elements of sound and light.
Kjell Engman is frequently commissioned for public works both in Sweden and abroad.
