Now in his 73rd year and something of a legendary figure within the Swedish glass industry, it’s hard to believe that Engman has never had a solo show in the UK before. He has designed for Kosta Boda, one of the world’s leading brands of glassware and art glass, since 1978. His work is avidly collected by fans around the world and he has an established reputation within the UK art glass market. The exhibition will feature around thirty art works including new pieces made especially for the show. Engman will be making a rare trip outside his homeland to come to Norwich.

Engman’s style is distinctive, bold, bright and colourful, ranging from the playful to the delicate to the sensuous. He’s also known for his trophy designs, the most famous of which is the Eurovision Song Contest trophy made from solid transparent glass in the style of a classic microphone.
