About Mats Jonasson and designers:
Mats Jonasson had the talent as a designer that attracted attention early on, when he started work as an apprentice engraver at the glassworks in 1959. Over the next few decades he worked with many of the most respected contemporary glass artists in Sweden. During this period, he developed that natural style of his which he's since perfected.
"Our forest have captured the hearts and minds of people since time immemorial," says Mats. Inspired by the natural world around him, he has opened his mind to create his distinctive masterpieces in the finest Swedish crystal. Nowadays, his art is represented all over the world.
Erika Hoglund was born in Sweden in 1971 into a family of artists, where glass and design played an important role in everyday life. As a child she was fascinated by the teamwork that existed between the glassblower and the designer and what they could achieve by working together on glowing crystal. With this background and a fiercely independent and often world and fantastic streak of creativity, Erika has opened up completely new perspectives in what can be achieved in the medium of crystal.
Robert Ljubez, after escaping the horrors of war in Bosnia, ended up in Sweden at the end of 1992. Experiences from engraving and drawing in combination with an artistic talent led to a job at the glassworks in 1996. At first, Robert Ljubez worked as an engraver, but he soon became Mats Jonasson's right hand man. Robert's time at Mats Jonasson Maleras has provided him with invaluable knowledge of the unexpected possibilities there are in working with crystal. A successful combination of curiosity and a great respect for the craftsmanship at Maleras has inspired him to create his own objects in crystal.
Klas-Goran Tinback is a studio glass artist who's been tempted to return to the warmth of the glassworks after a couple of decades away. His collection represents a bold foray into the world of the glass artist.
Tinback's works are on display at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Stockholm, the Rohsska Museum in Gothenburg and the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Berlin. His work has been exhibited in Japan, Brazil and the USA, as well as all over Europe.
