Conversations on Craft+Form with Form-Giver Ingegerd Råman

Saturday, February 17, 2018 - 10:30am

Hear how form, function and aesthetics have influenced the career of Swedish glass and ceramics form-giver (as she prefers) Ingegerd Råman, who is considered one of Sweden’s national living treasures. Råman is recognized for her ability to work at a high level of mastery in craft, and for her continuing work in preservation.

Join us as Minnesota’s craft + design community, including some of Minnesota's most ambitious makers, comes together to share new projects, designs and ideas in a craft "show and tell."

Co-presented with the American Craft Council (presenting the work of shoemaker Amara Hark Weber), the Textile Center (presenting the work of textile artist Kelly Marshall), Northern Clay Center (featuring ceramic artist Liz Pechacek), the American Association of Woodturners (featuring the work of Jess Hirsch), Foci Center For Glass Arts (presenting the work of Chad Holliday), and the American Swedish Institute (featuring the work of Beth Dow).    


Ingegerd Råman is one of Sweden's most renowned designers of glass and ceramics. Simplicity and timelessness are the key characteristics of her work that have helped Råman enjoy a career of longevity and success. She creates objects that are balanced and discreet but also warm - a feeling of joy and beauty are inherent in her works. Råman believes her objects do not come to life until they are used. Multifunctionality plays a large role in her designs and pieces can often be combined with one another and reassembled in various combinations.

Råman has designed for several important Scandinavian and international manufacturers, most notably Johanfors Glass, Skruf and Orrefors. Her work is exhibited by museums such as the National Museum of Fine Arts in Stockholm, the Corning Glass Museum. Raman has won the Excellent Swedish Design Award no less than 17 times.
