Karen Nyholm Glass Fantasy

Karen Nyholm is working with extraordinary technical perfection and at the same time she gives her fancy full scope. She is selecting her subjects associatively transferring them with admirable mastership. There is always something to discover at the second glance.

The decanters are made in blown glass. I have used bright transparent colours. Each decanter has a stopper in a complementing transparent colour. Where the glass overlaps, a third colour appears.

Karen Nyholm followed a design and glass education since 1998. She attended Engelsholm Kunsthøjskole and Braband glasskole in 1998/1999. In 2000 she worked in the studio of Steffen Dam and Micha Karlslund. She completed her degrees at Glas & Keramikskolen på Bornholm from 1999 to 2002 and the  Pilchuck Glass School, U.S.A. in 2003. Since 2006 she established the "Nyholm-Cantrell" Glasstudio at DK-Aarhus together with her husband, the glass artist Ned Cantrell. The moved the studio to Ebeltoft in 2014.
