Tobias Møhl

Born 1970, Aalborg, Denmark

"My work is about using the Venetian techniques in a Scandinavian way rather than in a Venetian way. It is also about seeing the techniques as a tool to clarify and refine my personal expression. I have searched for simple details in glass which, when used in the right context, adds an extra refinement to the end result. I have explored methods that break away from the traditional patterns to discover a new and more organic expression and style."

“Craft and design has always fascinated me and it has always been one of my ambitions to become a skilled craftsman. I became a glassblower, which thus lead me to become a great admirer of the Venetian glassblowers with their unique and impressive techniques.

Quite early on in my career, I was extremely fortunate to meet the legendary Lino Tagliapietra. My acquaintance with him has had a great influence on the development of my skills and design. Through him, the door to the multitude of Venetian techniques has been opened. It has been a great challenge for me to learn and master the Venetian techniques and an equally demanding challenge to use them in my own way.”
