Ingeborg Lundin joined Orrefors in 1947, the youngest of the firm’s second generation of designers and its first woman. She explained her fresh and spirited style as follows: ‘You can only express certain feelings in glass. You can’t express sad feelings, for instance, because the entire process of making glass is exuberant. I have never seen a sad glass’.
