Web Description: 
Møhl uses Venetian decorative techniques to produce glass with a restrained, spare, and distinctly Scandinavian sensibility. With his palette of black, white, and colorless glasses, he decorates his vessels with pencil-thin lines of filigrana in different patterns. In their spontaneity and complexity, they appear as if drawn on the vase rather than blown from cane. These four vessels create one work that is a study in the filigrana technique.
