Ann Wahlstrom has designed wares for Ikea and Kosta Boda, and ceramics, metals and textiles for brands from Cappellini to Boda Nova. Wahlstrom’s work is as varied in material as it is colour. Her strong aesthetic ties together her wide use of graphic lines and sweeping arcs whether applied to the flat surface of textiles or the fluid forms of glass. Her inspiration comes from nature, ancient architecture, and children’s book illustration. She cites Moomin creator Tove Jansson as a huge influence.
Wahlstrom lives in Sweden. The current collection we have of her work was created during her Artist Residency at Museum of Glass-Tacoma.
