Göran Wärff (1933-2022) is considered an old wise counselor of Swedish artglass design. After his education in Germany, he went to Sweden with his wife and worked first for Pukeberg Glassworks and then for Kosta. Influenced by the Bauhaus school and the creative freedom their clients gave them they received the prestigious Lunning Prize for their work in 1968. After their divorce in 1972, Göran Wärff took up teaching positions in Australia and England. The forest- and water-rich natural impressions of Sweden were reflected in Wärff´s art works for Kosta Boda since 1984.
