Norwegian glass artist living in Haugesund, Norway. Co-founder of Formbar Glassverksted AS (www.formbar.no)

eirinbhansen@gmail.com

Eirin er utdannet glassblåser fra Riksglasskolan i Orrefors og har en BA i glasskunst og design fra Det Kongelige Danske kunstakademis skoler i Danmark. Hun jobber både funksjonelt og skulpturelt, men dras stadig vekk fra det tradisjonelle mot det abstrakte og skulpturelle.

En stor del av hennes arbeider handler om egne følelser og opplevelser, og hun uttrykker seg ofte i form av repetisjon og bevegelse.
