Designer

Eva Englund (1937-1998) was a Swedish designer, mainly in glass. Eva Englund trained ceramics at Konstfack and at Capellagården. She was active at Pukeberg glass factory 1964–1973 and Orrefors 1974–1990. Eva came to be the one who renewed the graal glass at Orrefors, initially in more discreet pastel colors and abstract plant motifs. At the end of the 1980s, Eva designed what she has become best known for, the graal glass pieces in strong colors and with narrated motifs. Her pieces were extremely sought after and there were queues at the exhibitions in the late 1980s to buy some of her sought after creations. After she left Orrefors, Eva continued to work with glass in graal technique together with the glassblower Wilke Adolfsson in a studio called Muraya.
