Per Lutken best known for his glass designs began his career with Holmegaard in 1942 and remained there until his death in 1998. Many of his more than 300 series and 3000 designs have become Swedish glass classics. When he began at Holmegaard he had no previous glass experience but grew to be considered one of the foremost glass blowing experts in the world. He was known for being a perfectionist and for telling the glass blowers who might complain about his designs being too difficult…. “Well, who said things were supposed to be easy?” This perfectionism is but one of the reasons why his designs were successful and sought out in the 20th century and remain sought after by collectors in the 21st.
