Designer

Ann Wolff (b. 1937), also known as Ann Wärff, was born in Lübeck, Germany. Wolff studied at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm 1956-1959. She came to Sweden and Pukebergs Glasbruk 1960-1964 and worked at Kosta glassworks 1964-1978. From 1978 she had her own studio in Transjö and has since worked with studio glass. Ann Wolff, formerly Wärff after her first marriage to the glass artist Göran Wärff, changed her name to Ann Wolff in 1985. She was appointed Professor in Design at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg 1993-1998. Ann Wolff's work is represented in many museum collections both internationally and in Sweden. Her early works were often with narrative motifs in ground and engraved over and under capture techniques. In recent years, Ann Wolff's work has become increasingly monumentally sculptural, and she works not only in glass but also in aluminum and bronze.

In 2017, Ann Wolff and her husband Dirk Bimberg established the non-profit organization Ann Wolff Foundation in Visby, which cares for and maintains Ann Wolff's artwork, displays and publishes it and broadens the discussion around art and culture with a focus on glass. A property in the middle of Visby donated to AWFG serves as a studio for the artist and a meeting place for AWFG and Ann's friends.
