Andrea C. Blum

Andrea has spent her life working in glass. “My work has always involved light and color”. A stained glass artist and fabricator, she holds a Design degree from the University of Minnesota where she taught from 1976-1980.

A collector of 20th century Swedish art glass, she has been a consultant to the American Swedish Institute’s glass collection since 1977. In 1986, Andrea received the ASI’s Lilly Lorenzen Scholarship to study the glass factories in Sweden. This resulted in the 1991 ASI exhibition “Hot Glass from Swedish Forests”.

Her accumulated knowledge of glass is reflected in her art glass vessels.
