Biography & Statement

RASMUS NOSSBRING

Artist statement

 

The content of my work consists of moments from my everyday life. I portray events bearing signs of contemporary humanity and daily routines. In this frame, memories, social dynamics and dreams are subjects that interest me. Ultimately, I want to convey what I see and feel in my everyday life through my work and create monuments of the mundane.

 

I am a sculptor working in a variety of materials but express myself primarily in glass. In this medium, I try to move past conventional techniques and to discover what is possible in hot glass

 

 

 

Biography

 

Rasmus Nossbring was born 1991 in Norrköping, Sweden. At only 15 years old he began an apprenticeship with masters at Reijmyre Glassworks, working on their traditional Swedish production line. Gradually learning the processes of glassblowing, casting, and sculpting, the young artist started creating objects of his own in his free time. In 2010, The National Museum Design recognized some of these works. At the Reijmyre factory, this estimable acknowledgement earned him more freedom and greater responsibility in creating unique works for various artists and the designing objects for the factory.

Influenced by Swedish and American glass culture, Nossbring is continuously broadening his artistic vocabulary and increasing his skill. In 2014, for example, he made his way to Pilchuck Glass School for the first time as an intern in their famous glass studio. He has since been returning to America regularly, visiting Corning Museum of Glass and Pilchuck Glass School in various capacities. In the same year, Nossbring left Reijmyre Glassworks, found more time for his own work, and began studying at Konstfack University of Arts and Crafts, Stockholm. The aspiring artist will graduate in 2017.
