Erik Höglund was a Swedish artist known for his experimentative work with amber glass. His glass bottles, chandeliers, and candelabras are characterized by their delicate, geometric designs. For example, in Chandelier (1970), the artist balanced cup-like glass fixtures on top of a spherical, metal structure. Born in 1932 in Karlskrona, Sweden, he studied sculpture at the University of Arts, Crafts, and Design in Stockholm. At age 25, Höglund became the youngest artist to ever receive the Lunning Prize, awarded annually to up-and-coming Scandinavian designers. He worked as a designer for Boda Glassworks from 1953-1973, quickly becoming celebrated for his strong use of color and embossed animal designs. Höglund died in 1988 in Sweden. Today, his work is held in the collections of the Blekinge museum in Karlskrona, the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, and the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in New York, among others.
