Hoglund penguin - ID = Hoglund NZ
« on: July 30, 2006, 11:30:36 AM »
Any ideas as to which Hoglund made this penguin?  Signed 'Hoglund Art Glass' on base.  Erik or daughter Erika ?

Hi Anne,

I looked it up on Google and found the following:

http://www.sealifecreations.com/hoglund/penguin.htm

Höglund Art Glass
www.hoglund.co.nz

Ola Höglund and Marie Simberg-Höglund settled in New Zealand in 1982, where they have a glassblowing studio in Nelson, the Northern tip of the South Island.
Born in Sweden, Ola and Marie trained with Kosta Boda and Orrefors, before three years in Africa on a Swedish Government (SIDA) development project, teaching the art of hand-blown glass techniques in Swaziland..........

Wow - many thanks Ingela :P  I was way out with the Hoglund connection.

He's travelled a long, long way (http://www.websmileys.com/sm/animal/527.gif)

He looks great with my little Hadeland eskimo  8)  :lol:

Hej Anne E. B.

You were not far off. The Hoglund in New Zealand is the son of Erik Hoglund, the Swedish glass artist.
