Mats Jonasson’s talent as a designer attracted attention early on, when he started work as an apprentice engraver at the glassworks in 1959. Over the next few decades he worked with many of the most respected contemporary glass artists in Sweden. During this period, he developed that natural style of his which he’s since perfected.
Mats Jonasson, has been creating and exhibiting his artwork at the finest galleries and art venues around the world for more than 50 years. Inspired by the surrounding forest of his youth, as well as the myths, legends and tales of his Norwegian ancestors, he has created a collection of alluring, finely-detailed glass sculptures that pay homage to his homeland.
“Our forests have captured the hearts and minds of people since time immemorial”, says Mats. Inspired by the natural world around him, he has opened his mind to create his distinctive masterpieces in the finest Swedish crystal. Nowadays, this son of the glassworks is represented all over the world.
