Olle Alberius


Born in 1926 in Sweden, glass designer and ceramicist Olle Alberius trained in ceramics at the Stockholm College of Art, Crafts and Design from 1952–56. Over the course of his career, he worked in ceramic design at Syco and Rörstrand (1963–71), and, beginning in 1971, designed pieces for renowned Swedish glassware company Orrefors. Notably, Alberius’s works were made using the traditional Orrefors glass-blowing techniques of Ariel—in which air bubbles are trapped within layers of clear glass—and Graal—in which a colored layer of glass is encased by a transparent layer.

Alberius passed away in 1993.
