Add Style To Your Home With - Swedish Crystal !

Midnightsun Designs - Norrköping, Sweden


   Swedish design has long been associated with smooth, clean lines and elegant form. Usually, furniture is the first thing that springs to mind. However, the American market has left a treasure trove of Swedish design largely untapped and was mostly left to the financially affluent - Swedish Crystal  

 

>

 

    There are only two names marketed heavily in America today, yet the Crystal Kingdom area of Sweden has more than 16 glassworks and numerous small glass studios. Thus, the selection in the U.S. remains small and many of the fantastic forms created by Swedish artisans remain undiscovered. For the few who are lucky enough to visit the Crystal Kingdom region, a whole new world full of color, form and design. 

For Kristina Gaidry, of Midnightsun Design, she remembers when she first became fascinated with glassworks as a child, "I visited my first Swedish glassworks with my uncle and watched the process from start to finish. It was the most magical experience! I had a whole new appreciation for the heavy crystal I brought home to my American relatives after each visit to Sweden. "

Midnightsun Design is the product of two people who fell in love with Swedish crystal. "When I couldn’t visit Sweden, because of school and work obligations," says Kristina, "My mother, who had moved back to her native homeland, would bring me a lovely piece each time she visited."

     Bjorn Ingbrandt partner at Midnightsun, became enraptured with Swedish crystal in the very same way, yet as an adult. "We went to the very same glassworks!" He saw with new eyes and interest the process of creating such works of art.

With extensive visits to private studios they were rewarded with visions of great beauty and the idea to create Midnightsun. "We feel we owe it to the many talented artists in Sweden to introduce their beautiful creations to the uninitiated."

Quality craftsmanship is hard to find in this automated society. In Sweden, the tradition of glass-blowing lives on. Everything is hand blown or mouth blown . Some are blown into molds to achieve their form; others are blown entirely freehand, which is without a mold. 

Glassblowing is a trade that takes many years to learn and master. The truly skilled make it look quite easy, but it takes teamwork and precision to produce a single piece.

After losing her bout with cancer, Kristina's mother will no longer be bringing gifts of crystal to America. Whether or not she realized it, she helped to spread the name of fine Swedish crystal. Those she touched are confirmed Swedish crystal converts. 

   Like her mother, Kristina feels that too few people are exposed to the fluid lines and elegant look of Swedish crystal. Midnightsun Designs presents the opportunity to experience fine Swedish crystal without having stepped foot in Sweden. Their goal is to share the love they have for fine hand blown Swedish crystal through education and a vision, says Kristina,  

"I think my mother would have approved!"
