 Jennie Olofsson, glassblower

You can feel the presence of your hands in the material. It brings it to life.

Jennie Olofsson has been round the world several times, but always returns to Gotland, where her soul is deeply rooted. It is where she hones her artistry. “I was lying in a hammock in Laos when it suddenly came to me that I should become a glassblower. Glass is a living material, full of energy, full of power.”
The material itself is inspiring. The molten glass, over 1,100 degrees Celsius, calls for presence and concentration.

Olofsson loves to demonstrate when it is alive, cracking, hissing, crumpling. It shows the power of glass. Dangerous, yet elegant and fun.

“You are always close to nature on Gotland. Simply stepping outside gives me a tremendous sense of peace and calm. There are so many charming places here. At the moment, I am fascinated by a field with iron age graves.”

Made By Gotland is wonderful. We all believe in craftsmanship and working with materials. Gotland gives us so much. We can now give something back.”
