Jo Andersson Swedish-American, b. 1988
There are many things I love about glass. Its fluidity, intensity and femininity are just a few of the things I love about it. The way it interacts with light, the way it moves and responds to my energy and movement and the way I feel so alive while working with it. My relationship with glass has taught me many priceless lessons. It has taught me how to communicate in a better way, to stand in my power and most importantly it has helped me to become more aware of myself and my environment.
Jo Andersson was born in Walnut Creek, California in 1988. She began blowing glass at the age of 19 at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. Shortly after receiving her Bachelor of Fine Art with an emphasis in glass, Jo moved to Seattle, WA to work in the glass field professionally. In the spring of 2020 Jo graduated with her Master in CRAFT! with an emphasis in ceramics and glass from Konstfack in Stockholm, Sweden. She is interested in how she can use the material glass with light to create objects and experiences which inspire presence and a feeling of well-being.
Jo's solo exhibition BEING was held at Galleri Duerr in March-April 2021.
