Sonja Blomdahl
(Waltham, Massachusetts, 1952 - )

Sonja Blomdahl was born in 1952 in Waltham, Massachusetts. Blomdahl began her glassmaking career as an undergraduate student during the 1970s at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, when she took a course taught by glass sculptor Dan Dailey, who had trained at RISD under Dale Chihuly and at the Venini glass factory on the island of Murano. Two years after earning her fine arts degree from Massachusetts, Blomdahl, too, turned to Europe for more training; she enrolled in the intensive six-month program offered at Orrefors Glass School in Sweden (her ancestral home). At Orrefors she learned and became so in-sync with the Swedish style—clear, crisp lines and unadorned surfaces—that it came to permeate her work. Upon her return to the States, she became Dailey’s teaching assistant at Pilchuck and then decided to make Seattle her home. There she operates her own glass blowing studio and teaches at and serves on the board of Pratt Fine Arts Center.
