Carina Seth Andersson
After leaving school, Carina Seth Andersson also left her home city of Stockholm – to attend glass school in Orrefors. After a few years’ work in the blowing room, she returned home to continue her studies at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Since then she has worked for a number of different clients.
When Carina Seth Andersson was named as Designer of the Year in 2017, it was in recognition of her work as “the champion of low-key perfectionism”. She takes her inspiration from both things and the people she meets, and in recent years from the Japanese countryside.
Carina Seth Andersson is known for her distinctive but purposeful work and her vases are rightly regarded as Swedish modern classics. In 2016, she received the honour of designing the glass tableware given by the Swedish parliament and government to King Carl XVI Gustaf for his 70th birthday, and this was also blown in Skruf.
