Micke Johansson Guest Artist Demonstration

Watch as Swedish glassmaker, Micke Johansson demonstrates his own unique style of glassworking in the Amphitheater Hot Shop at the November 2300° event.

At 16 years old, Johansson started to work at Orrefors glassworks where he continued honing his craft for the next 15 years. He became a master glassblower at Orrefors at the age of 24. Johansson has been working from his own studio since 2007. From there, he produces all of his own glass designs. He focuses on glass techniques and specializes in "old Swedish" techniques like Ariel, Graal and the Swedish overlay.
