Nominations: Grandprize 2015 & Årets Västerbottning 2014

I have been nominated to two prestigious prizes:

Grandpriset 2015 through Region Västerbotten (a co-operative body which is responsible of regional development issues and growth in Västerbotten County) and Länsstyrelsen (The County Administrative Board of Västerbotten which is a Swedish national authority).

A Crownprincess and 100 MIGRATORY

On Friday I get a visit to my exhibition by the Crownprincess Victoria, her husband Daniel and the Museum Director Ulrica Grubbström. 10 minutes. I wish the glass and the images tell their own story as I’m warned the 70 media representatives – that´s also going to be in my exhibition space that time – might make such a loud noice with their cameras so my visitors might not hear what I say.

Should be fun and kind of a contrast to my ordinary working days as an artist in my glass workshop and studio in an old barn just outside Tärnaby. Lucky enough I sometimes get a visit to my studio in Bäcknäs by Carin and Harry the dog.
