Ola Höglund

  • Biography

    Ola Höglund was born in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1956, into a family of artists where glass and design were an important part of life. It seemed almost inevitable that Ola would become involved in glass. His mother Maerit is an independent ceramic artist. His father Erik, was an artist who at the early age of 21 as a glass designer, revolutionised the art of glass in Sweden and for a large part of the Swedish public, the name Höglund became synonymous with modern Swedish glass.

    Ola knew at an early age that working with glass was his destiny. “The first time I saw glassblowers at work, I was just a young boy. I decided straight away that when I grew up I was going to be a glassblower myself.”

    “Inspiration just comes to me,” says Ola. “As I get familiar with the material, I
    start to know how it is going to behave. My strongest interest is in mastering
    the forms and pure lines. The simpler they are, the more challenging they are.
    Every time I blow a piece of glass I am trying to improve from the previous time, and every time I get just as frustrated and feel the need to do it one more time.
    This is the life of most artists and something that takes a while to learn to use
    to ones advantage.”
