Bjørn Friborg (Danish, b. 1983) is a glass artist who defies historical methods of making and reinvents process with a dramatically physical approach that pushes the limits of material and technique and is as much a performance as it is a means to an end. With bravado he penetrates, manipulates and ruptures the molten substance for results that are otherworldly, sublimely beautiful, and where the materiality viscerally and outwardly reflects his tour de force movements. Friborg received a BFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture, Design and Conservation in 2013 after studying in Sweden at both the Åfors Glasbruk, V.1 Mästare Ingvar Carlsson “Kalle Pack” and the Kosta Glass School. His work has been exhibited nationally in Denmark and throughout the Scandinavian region as well as internationally.
