Sonja Blomdahl

Sonja Blomdahl describes her focus as the vessel: “It holds the space. In a sense, the vessel is a ‘history of my breath,’ it contains the volume within.” For Blomdahl, a successful piece is one in which the profile is a continuous curve, a full shape, and a confident opening. While form is her focus, color is ‘the joy’ of the piece as various hues glow and react with each other. Blomdahl received her Bachelor of Fine Art from the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, and continued her education at the Orrefors Glass School, Orrefors, Sweden. She has had solo exhibitions at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, Montgomery, Alabama; Martha’s Vineyard Glassworks, West Tisbury, Massachusetts; and the William Traver Gallery, Tacoma, Washington.
