Frida Fjellman (Swedish, b. 1971) is a multi-disciplinary artist living and maintaining a studio in Stockholm, Sweden. Originally trained as a ceramist, Fjellman has since expanded her practice to include works in glass, wood, and neon; all executed with the same mastery of medium and technical skill. Ranging from table-top scale to fully immersive, grand-scale installations, all of Fjellman’s creations project a playful attitude. Eschewing the restrained tone and temper typical of Swedish design, Fjellman’s works are rich in color and decorative flourish - a Modern Baroque approach marrying outward beauty with exacting detail and master craftsmanship.
