Morgan Persson   intro

Morgan Persson

In his 20s, Morgan Persson suddenly and quite unexpectedly became convinced that he should devote his life to working with glass. This insight led to something of an obsession, and he left his job as a vehicle paint sprayer and trained at the Swedish National School of Glass in Orrefors.

After working at various different blowing rooms, he moved to Stockholm, where he and two colleagues ran Glashyttan blowing room in Vaxholm for several years. During this period he developed his own version of the graal technique.

This involves him first creating a classic graal object with an additional glass overlayer, which is then entirely covered with silver leaf. The motif is then blasted and engraved, and when the engraving is finished, the object is reheated in the blowing room and dipped in molten glass.
