Elin Isaksson is an Artist & Designer-Maker, she graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2006 with an MA in Design & Applied Arts and she is now teaching glassblowing and producing her hand blown glass in her glass blowing studio in Dunblane. She began her glass blowing training at the famous Orrefors Glass School in Sweden learning traditional glass blowing techniques. Further education includes apprenticeship and master classes in Sweden, France and Italy.Her inspiration comes from the play of light, texture and movement in nature and aim to capture a small detail or an atmosphere rather than reproduce a direct likeness of an object or form. Isaksson mainly uses the glassblowing technique to achieve her elegant and tactile simple forms in subtle colour blends. Stockists for Isaksson's production pieces are galleries in England and Scotland. She also offers bespoke glass for lighting and sculpture projects. Corporate clients are amongst: National Museum of Scotland, Glenfiddich and Oil & Gas UK. Her most recent works she created was for the Festival of Light exhibition at the newly refurbished Kirkudbright Galleries. This project involved the local primary school children who helped to inspire Isaksson’s final glass designs.
