GLASS MASTER AND MAGICIAN
Micke Johansson became a glass master at the early age of 24 and is today famous for his incredibly advanced works of art in various combinations of the techniques Graal, Ariel and sculpted glass. He has developed the Double Ariel technique himself and is probably the only one in the world to be able to perform it. Micke learned the playfulness and humility to dare to test, experiment and push the boundaries of Nordic glass art at the Pilchuck Glass School in the USA. Ulrica Hydman Vallien ensured that he received a scholarship to learn how to handle Italian thin glass in combination with the slightly heavier Nordic tradition.
